SkyRail. SKYRAIL - THE WORLDS MOST BEAUTIFUL RAINFOREST EXPERIENCE.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Cairns Australia, is a world first in environmental tourism taking you on an amazing experience over Australiaís World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest.

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 youíll see, hear, smell and become part of the tropical rainforest environment.

Relax and enjoy the stunning rainforest scenery, panoramic views of the Cairnsí tropical region and the glittering waters of the Coral Sea. Alight at Skyrailís two rainforest mid-stations, Red Peak and Barron Falls, where youíll explore this amazing environment from the forest floor on boardwalks, scenic look-outs and in the state-of-the-art Rainforest Interpretation Centre.

Voted Australiaís 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.

Skyrail can be enjoyed as complete day tour adventure or combined as a package with a number of Cairnsí other leading tourist attractions. Skyrailís Kuranda Terminal is located a short walk from the famous village of Kuranda where youíll be able to enjoy the local attractions and shopping.

A one-way Skyrail Experience will take approximately 90 minutes to complete and for a return experience you should allow 2Ĺ hours. Our trip map section contains more information.
