Your day tour begins with convenient pickup at your Cairns hotel. Board a comfortable tour vehicle for the ride to the Atherton Tablelands, enjoying the scenic views of Queensland's prairie on the way. 

Disembark at Herberton Historical Village, one of Queensland's most important open-air museums. Take a guided tour of the more than 50 original outhouse buildings, including intact interior displays, original vehicles, and machinery from the 19th century. After your tour, you'll have free time to explore independently and eat your provided light lunch. 

Continue your tour to Kuranda Village and take a walk through the rainforest for views of the Barron River and explore the galleries, markets, and boutiques.

Finish your day with a ride on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, which glides over the forest canopy for 4.6 miles (7.5 km). From inside the comfortable cabin, get views of the Cairns Highlands and the Coral Sea Beyond. Disembark at two rainforest mid-stations to explore and visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. 

Return to your hotel in Cairns for drop-off.

Stop At:  
Skyrail Rainforest Cableway
Seeing the oldest rainforest from the bird-view angel, pass by the Barron Falls and Red Peak station to learn about how rare is the rainforest to Earth and what it means to our humanity. This is the longest cableway in the world, built-in 1995, takes 10 months and without cutting any tree. This is the most expensive building cableway project nowadays.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At:  
Historic Village Herberton
Back in the 1950s, many relics were being sold off for scrap metal. Old buildings were being condemned for demolition. Collector Harry Skennar had a vision – to preserve history for generations to come. He set about creating The Village back in 1973, bringing the first building, Elderslie House, onto the site beside Wild River. Many more buildings and relics followed. Most of the dwellings met for the first time when they arrived at the Village from around the region during the 1970s. With the exception of the Tin Pannikin Pub, everything in the village dates from Herberton’s foundation years and almost all the buildings are as they were originally constructed. Regular maintenance keeps them sturdy and secure and in some cases, modern lighting, safety grills, screens, and steps have been installed for visitor's safety. Beyond this, the buildings and thousands of original items displayed in and around them reflect everyday life in North Queensland as it was from the 1880s onward.
