This package combines Skyrail Rainforest Cableway with the famous Kuranda Scenic Railway for a full day tour experience.
Skyrail will take you on an amazing experience over Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest.
Your Skyrail experience should take approximately 1 ½ hours and includes spending time at the two rainforest mid-stations. Allow 20 minutes for each station, to enjoy Ranger guided boardwalk tours and visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre, lookouts and historical displays.
The famous Kuranda Scenic Railway was built over 100 years ago and winds its way through the tropical mountain ranges between Cairns and Kuranda.
This package includes time for you to explore Kuranda ‘The Village in the Rainforest’. There are rainforest walks, markets, cafes, restaurants, and galleries for you to visit.
The Skyrail experience, spanning 7.5kms over pristine rainforest, allows you to explore the wonders of an ancient tropical rainforest and learn about one of the most botanically fascinating and diverse areas on earth.
Gliding just metres above the rainforest canopy in comfortable six-person gondola cabins, the Skyrail journey immerses you in an intimate rainforest experience where you’ll see, hear, smell and become part of the tropical rainforest environment.
Relax and enjoy the stunning rainforest scenery, panoramic views of the Cairns’ tropical region and the glittering waters of the Coral Sea. Alight at Skyrail’s two rainforest mid-stations, Red Peak and Barron Falls, where you’ll explore this amazing environment from the forest floor on boardwalks, scenic look-outs and in the state-of-the-art Rainforest Interpretation Centre.
Voted Australia’s Best Major Tourist Attraction, the multi-award winning Skyrail is recognised not only as a premier tourist experience, but as a world leader in eco-tourism, providing you with a truly unique rainforest experience available no where else in the world.
We suggest you bring comfortable walking clothes and shoes and a day pack only. Luggage is not to be carried on the cableway. Each gondola seats up to 6 people (including infants). Gondolas leave the station continuously; bookings are taken in 15 minute intervals.

Travelling through the mist in your fully enclosed gondola cabin, you will see the rainforest come to life in the rain, and there are complimentary umbrellas available at the mid-stations.
