FAQs ASK
  • Q:we are on a cruise with Norwegian and will be in port (Yorkey''s Knob on the 24th arriving I port at 10:00AM and staying overnight and leaving port at 5:00PM). Would we be able to do this skyrail and railway experience on the 25th of November and be able to book transportation from the port in Yorkey''s Knob, and be back on boark by 4:30PM for our departure time. Look forward to hearing from you
    A:The earliest railway time back to Cairns station is 2:00pm, and the railway experience takes one way for around 2 hrs, I'm afraid you cannot make your way back to the port by 4:30pm. The best is to allow whole one day for this. If you have any other question, you can send email to the service@kootrip.com. Thanks.
