Explore the Rainforest through the Skyrail

Experience the rainforest in the most scenic way possible. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway takes you through an amazing journey through Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest.

Spanning 7.5 kilometres over lush rainforest, the Skyrail experience lets you explore the rainforest and its diverse flora and fauna.

Feel the thrill of gliding above the rainforest canopy in a spacious gondola cabin that comfortably seats six people at a time. Discover the rainforest and enjoy unparalleled views of the Cairns’ tropical region and the glittering waters of the Coral Sea.

Skyrail has two rainforest mid-stations, Red Peak and Barron Falls. You may alight at the mid-stations and explore the environment from the forest floor. See the sights as you walk along boardwalks and walkways. Complimentary Ranger guided boardwalk tours operate regularly at Red Peak Station and Barron Falls Station houses a fascinating Rainforest Interpretation Centre and spectacular look-outs.

You may begin or conclude your Skyrail experience at either the Caravonica or Kuranda. You may combine the Skyrail with the Kuranda Scenic Railway or any number of Cairns’ day tours. You could explore the various attractions of Kuranda including the butterfly sanctuary, Koala Park and a selection
of markets, cafes and restaurants.

A one-way Skyrail experience takes around 90 minutes and a return trip takes around two and a half hours. Skyrail operates daily from 9am to 5:15pm. You can enjoy the rainforest rain or shine. Advanced booking is recommended.

Take this unique journey through the rainforest. Skyrail is just a few minutes away from our Cairns Holiday Accommodation.
