Combining World Heritage Rainforest with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and the famous Kuranda Scenic Railway, this tour encompasses the best scenic transportation options available in the region. The Kuranda Scenic Railway is famed for its beautiful route and the fact that it has been servicing the community for over 100 years. Winding through the lush green rainforest, cascading waterfalls and tropical mountain ranges, this is one journey to remember.

The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway will take around 1.5 hours from departure and includes stops at the Red Peak Station and Barron Falls along the way. The two station stops are worth exploring and guests are advised to allocate around 20 minutes at each to explore the lookouts, historical displays and enjoy a guided boardwalk tour from a local ranger.

In Kuranda, you're free to explore at your own pace. You can visit one of the many great family friendly attractions including Kuranda Koala Gardens, Birdworld and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, or you could simply just wander around the markets and relax at a local café - the choice is yours.

Combining two of the region's must-do experiences and providing you with the chance to explore the gorgeous village of Kuranda, this package brings you great value for money and great sights. Book yours online today to get your Far North Queensland adventure started.

The combination of the Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail is a relaxed and scenic day out for the family in Cairns. Going up the mountain one way and coming day another means you aren't treading over the same ground, and you get to experience the beautiful hinterland from different perspectives. The history of the train is quite interesting and the 'hop on hop off' nature of the Skyrail gave lots of variety to the trip. Highly recommended.

Spectacular scenery worth the time and money to do this trip.
Caron Cole 4 days ago

We went on the train up to Kuranda. It was well organised you were allocated seats. The scenery is just stunning, plenty of good picture moments. We arrived in Kuranda and the village is beautiful. Then we took the skyrail back down through the rainforest. Scenery over the Barron Falls just stunning. Definitely worth the time and money to do this trip.

Awesome family day out, amazing views, and very informative!
Laura Greentree 2 weeks ago

The trip up in the cable car was amazing! The views were awesome. The app with the audio tour made the journey extra interesting. And the opportunity to stop along the way at Barron Falls for photos was great. This is an experience I would highly recommend to anyone travelling to Cairns.

Wonderful day out on the Kuranda historic railway and Skyrail.
Ronnie Chandler 3 weeks ago

We did the train ride up to Kuranda and the Skyrail down. Both are such an incredible feats of engineering & I loved the historical commentary on the train. The markets in Kuranda were closed on our visit (Wednesday) which was a shame. Otherwise a throughly enjoyable experience.

Awesome views. Lots of information provided. Interactive app available.
David Duong 1 month ago

Awesome views. Lots of information provided. Interactive app available. Friendly staff. Had the cabin to ourselves so it was very romantic. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a great outdoor experience. Especially combined with the Kuranda railway ride.

Amazing experience! Will definitely be back.
Leah Maher 1 month ago

Amazing experience. Definitely recommend and will be back next time with my family and friends. The skyrail was amazing. The commentary on the train was great and informative. Learnt so much and will definitely recommend this experience to anyone.

Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway tour was awesome.
Liesl Filipine 2 months ago

Honestly lost for words. Views were spectacular. The experience was one in a million. The history behind everything was so capturing and so beautiful and memorable. Would 100 percent recommend this tour to everybody and anybody that is in Cairns. A must do on the list if you come to Cairns.

It was an excellent trip with a one hour delayed train. Loved the experience.
Ahmad Abdullah 3 months ago

The check in process was smooth. The transfer to Freshwater station was great. The Kuranda Rail arrived one hour after the scheduled time which was bit of a sad start. Everything went well after the initial bump. Although we had to shorten our trip by one hour due to the train delay, overall, it was an excellent experience. Loved it. So many great memories.

Great experience, Skyrail was my personal favourite
Sharlee Rowland 3 months ago

Simple and easy transactions, no confusion when getting my tickets on the day. Bus that was provided to the station was also great and made it a lot easier as I could drive my car. Great experience to do. Skyrail was my favourite. Great to do on your own or with friends and family.

Amazing scenery and history of rail leading to Kuranda markets
Anand Goru 3 months ago

Train journey is worth the ride with breath taking scenery, waterfalls, history of the rail construction and gorge. Markets have a few stalls closed but as tourists come back will be more hustling and bustling. If you take the Skyrail back try and get to the later ones to have more time in the Kuranda markets.

The one-way Kuranda Scenic Rail up to Kuranda Village and one-way back down from Kuranda Village on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is by far the most popular way to visit this quaint little village in the rainforest. Take your time on the way down and stop off at the 2 base stations where you can stroll along the boardwalks and listen to guided ranger commentary.
