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.

This is the second time we have done the Skyrail and it was just as amazing as we remembered. The kids (4 & 7) loved it. Last time we came down on the Skyrail and if I had a preference I would probably do it that way again - only because it is spectacular when you come over the last peak and see Cairns and the ocean.
A great way to see the rainforest from a different angle.

A must do for the whole family - simply stunning fun and memorable.
Deborah Andree 2 months ago

The skyrail cableway was absolutely stunning and we loved the stops especially the waterfall. There was so much to do in Kuranda from loads of quaint village cafes, walking around the local markets offering their local handcrafts etc. to relaxing with a beer at the local. Go for a little walk along the river as it’s beautiful near the train station. Another must is the train meandering through the tunnels and rainforest. Even loved the shuttle at the end back to our car. This is a must-do whilst in Cairns and worth every cent.

The Skyrail was amazing and most of the staff were super friendly and welcoming. I didn't realise you could actually leave at every station and do bushwalking and lookouts around to then get on the next journey.
Leticia Lucindo 2 months ago

The waterfall lookout was definitely the highlight! I noticed the dimond view had a longer waiting time then the general public which is odd if you're paying more money for the upgrade. Don't forget to use your $5 discount if you buy the souvenir photo!

Spectacular rainforest views. Expectations exceeded!
Dale Thomas 2 months ago

The skyrail journey was incredible, stopping along the way to view picturesque waterfalls. Kuranda village is a cute little hippy town with markets hidden at the back in amongst a rainforest. Indigenous Aussie kids busking on streets very entertaining. The train journey back was amazing, very scenic, and interesting. Highly recommend!

A great experience, even those that were afraid of heights had a great time.
Michelle Lorkovic 3 months ago

A great experience, even those that were afraid of heights had a great time. The views were breathtaking, and something you must experience if given the opportunity. The train was also wonderful, the information given during the trip was informative. Thank you for the awesome day.

That train is unreal, like travelling back in time.
Jelena Doros 3 months ago

I more so enjoyed the train ride and it’s incredible features and passing destinations. It would have been nice to have sky rail recommend a few things to do once in Kuranda or even a map. Otherwise, a good day and the staff on the train were exceptional!

Highly recommend the trip to Kuranda by skyrail and train.
Shannon Read 3 months ago

The trip to Kuranda via skyrail is beautiful! We traveled with a toddler and a baby in a pram and it was great! Highly recommend getting off at both stops along the way. Kuranda itself is a small village, there’s not much to do there. I’d also recommend taking the train up and the skyrail back down. The views in this direction are much better. Also, it’s a long day so the chances of falling asleep on the train down is very easy to do.

Loved the Skyrail, Scenic Railway- walked around Kuranda and also did the river cruise.
Leonie Mollov 3 months ago

Very easy to book, we had transfers to and from. A must see for all! Excellent day out. Kuranda is a very beautiful place. The sky rail was amazing with two little breaks to get off and explore. The scenic railway was gorgeous! Beautiful scenery.

Spectacular views, wonderful staff, informative and very clean!
John McAloon 3 months ago

An amazing experience with lovely friendly knowledgeable staff, everything was lovely and clean! Highly recommend this experience! The views were out of this world! We went with our three children who all enjoyed the experience just as much as the adults!

Fabulous day for the whole family! What a fantastic experience! Great trip suitable for the whole family. We did the scenic railway first, and the Skyrail in the afternoon. Very well run, friendly and competent organisation.
Rachelle Farrington 3 months ago

What a fantastic experience! Great trip suitable for the whole family. We did the scenic railway first, which was very informative and interesting, with its amazing history and lovely scenery. This was followed by the Skyrail in the afternoon - our favourite part of the day - exploring the delightful village of Kuranda between each. Highly recommend!

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.
