wonderful, peaceful place

This resort is a wonderful, peaceful place to either relax using the lovely swimming pools or lazing on the beautiful beach, or a good base to explore the surrounding area. The quality of the food was superb and the staff extra efficient and friendly. Next time we visit nothern Queensland we will stay at Kewarra Resort as this was just what we needed to relax.

Recommend Butterfly Sanctury and Bird world.

Good day out with visits in Kuranda to the Butterfly sanctury and Bird world. Great way to get there by train and return by sky rail.

Great service right from start!

Great service right from the time Stuart, our driver, collected us at our hotel. The day was one to remember with many highlights but no problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend Kuranda Train & Skyrail to anyone who visits Cairns in the future.

Lovely day out

We had a lovely day out on the cat,
