The perfect gift for the family member or loved one who doesn't have a lot of time but would like to see all of the best sights that Cairns has to offer. Including a cruise to the famous Green Island, a trip above a World-Heritage Listed rainforest with a ride on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and a return journey winding through the rainforest on the Scenic Railway.

Their morning will be spent cruising along the Great Barrier Reef with a 45-minute trip to the popular Green Island. Here, they'll have around 2-hours to spend swimming and snorkelling in the vibrant coral reefs just off shore, exploring the luscious island or simply laying back and relaxing on the beautiful beaches. All passengers aboard the cruise are given the choice of either a ride on a glass bottom boat to see the reef from above or snorkelling equipment so they can dive right in and see clearly.

After the two hours is up, they'll jump back on board the catamaran to cruise back to Cairns Reef Fleet terminal. From here, they will have approximately 30 minutes to grab some lunch from one of the many nearby cafes or restaurants before they board their tour bus to journey to the base of the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. The gondolas will take them on a journey over and through this World-Heritage Listed Rainforest and provide them with some incredible views of the surrounding region. With the choice of disembarking at two stations along the way to walk along a scenic boardwalk or admire Barron Falls, they'll be treated to an incredibly scenic adventure.

Once they've made it to the top, they'll have approximately 30 minutes to explore this quaint village, meet some locals and take in the sights before the train whistle blows and they're to board the Scenic Railway for the return journey. Winding back down through the rainforest, they'll be treated to a different experience entirely, than that of their journey up.

This one-day package is one of the best ways to see the region in a short amount of time, without missing out on some of the major highlights. It also includes hotel drop offs to a number of destinations in the region.

For the part of Experience Oz, everything was seamless, from booking to the end of the tour. Organized and professional. As for the tour itself, we had a wonderful 2 hours in the morning, spending it at Green Island. We did the glass bottom boat and the semi-submarine. Both were wonderful. We went there in April and the water was neither clear nor murky. We saw a lot of fish species as well as the corals. It was fun seeing the fish fight for food during a fish feeding session. We had a quick lunch at Al Porto just right off the fleet terminal. The van for Kuranda was waiting for us outside the terminal. We only had about an hour or so to enjoy the rainforest. The Skyrail ride was just ok. It was sunny so felt warm during the ride. Go with the guided tour on the first stop to learn more about the rainforest and the plant/tree the dinosaurs used to eat. Very interesting. I would recommend this tour for those short on time in Cairns.
