Day 2 – Kuranda Scenic Train – Skyrail Experience

Cairns Scenic Train and skyrail  journey to Kuranda is an exciting one.  Just 25km northwest of Cairns in far north Queensland (1180ft above sea level) and surrounded by world heritage rainforest is this picturesque mountain retreat.

Combining the Scenic Train journey with the world famous Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a great way to experience this World Heritage listed tropical rainforest and Kuranda.

During the 90 minute journey,  you will learn about the pioneering history of the tropical north as the Kuranda train will climbs over 40 small bridges and through many hand made tunnels as it winds its way from Cairns to Kuranda.

Whilst Kuranda Scenic Train gives visitors an amazing view of the rainforest at ground level, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway provides an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest as it soars silently only meters above the rainforest canopy.

You’ll glide just metres above the rainforest canopy before descending through the canopy layers and deep into the heart of the rainforest at Skyrail’s two mid-stations stops to enjoy a walk through the rainforest,

Kuranda is not complete without a visit to Rainforest Station.  Set on 100 acres of World Heritage Rainforest this unique tourist attraction.

Safety Standards and Protocols

  • No experience is necessary and we have a range of horses suitable for all levels of experience.
  • We have a short training and familiarisation course which everyone must complete before beginning the trail ride.
  • At Blazing Saddles we only use the highest standard of equipment and we recently invested in the best stirrup in existence to reduce the risk of getting caught in the stirrup iron, that is the ‘Saferider’ safety stirrup which has a highly engineered quick release mechanism used by professionals and recreation riders alike.
  • We believe the soundest method to reduce risk of accident is to employ suitably experienced staff and to train them to our own high standards of safety.
  • We know each of our horses well and being able to match horse and rider is part of our “workplace horse and safety programme”.
  • In our time of running tourist trail adventures Blazing Saddles has maintained an excellent safety record and enough experience to realise that the best way to avoid accidents is preparation and training.
  • “The horses are in excellent condition, as good as any individually owned and cared for horse.” Veterinary Surgeon – Marlin Coast Veterinary Clinic Blazing Saddles has received certificates in the highest safety standards set for the industry to date in Australia.
  • These 2 certificates are extremely difficult to achieve, and require the highest standards in safety and training for horse-riding operators.
  • Some of the main points operators are required to have for these new certificates include: Safety Clogs –
  • These new safety ‘shoes’ attach to the stirrup and prevent any rider from having their foot caught in the stirrup in case of a fall. Walking Guide -One guide must be walking with the riders to assist at any stage of the ride.
  • Public-Access Roads – At no stage must a horse riding trail cross a road used by cars.
  • This prevents the horse from panicking and becoming unpredictable.
  • Horse Selection – Horses must be chosen for beginner rides with a suitable temperament.
  • Ex-racehorses must never be used for tourist trail rides. Staff Training
  • All Lead guides should be First Aid certified and highly experienced horse riders.
  • Japanese (or other international) staff should be also trained to a high level in their own language to ensure they are confident and capable around the guests and horses.
  • Group Size – One group of horse riders should be no larger than 12 people per one riding guide plus one walking guide.
  • Blazing Saddles uses a ratio of one guide to every 4 customers, including the walking guide.
  • 2-Point contact on Saddles – All saddles should have at least one main girth (underbelly) strap and one back-up safety attachment.
  • Lesson and Ability of Riders – All customers should have a comprehensive safety lesson and be questioned to their ability and how much prior experience they have had.
  • This should be recorded in writing and forms part of the AHIC Waiver form.
  • Emergency Procedures – Emergency procedures should be clearly displayed on the property and regular practices held. In addition suitable facilities should be located nearby, e.g ambulance station. Insurance –
  • All horse riding operators should maintain both Public Liability and Personal Accident Cover to Australian Government standards. This certificate should be regularly checked by agents.

Day 3 – Evening – Dinner Cruise

Experience Cairns like never before on the Ultimate Dinner Cruise.

A Cairns Dinner Cruise is the perfect way, to end a perfect 3 days in paradise. Boarding our sailing catamaran at the Marlin Marina, you’ll enjoy an evening of calm water cruising on Trinity Inlet, taking in the sights and sounds of this tropical port city and its surrounding mangroves, as they transition from day to night.

Every night begins with wine, as all good dinner cruises should. With your glasses charged, stroll the interior or exterior decks and admire the view as the sky transforms from blue to red to orange and finally a silky black, filled with thousands of sparkling stars.

Your journey takes you deep into the heart of Trinity Inlet and across the waterfront precinct of Cairns, from the Cruise Liner Terminal to the Esplanade. The water is calm, the weather mild and the night is yours to enjoy, with entertainment and a delicious buffet featuring some of the region’s best produce, including seafood. This is the ultimate in waterside dining.
