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. You can begin your journey into the rainforest with the Kuranda Scenic Railway, famed for its beautiful route and the fact that it has been servicing the community for over 100 years. Winding from Cairns through the lush green rainforest, cascading waterfalls and tropical mountain ranges to Kuranda Village, this is one journey to remember.

Once atop 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.

Come time to leave, you can make your way to the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway terminal and board the enclosed Skyrail that will lift you high into the sky for a smooth journey over the luscious World Heritage listed tropical rainforest. The one way journey will take around 1.5 hours from departure at the Kuranda Terminal to reach the Smithfield Terminal as well as including 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.

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.

Was the best way to celebrate my daughters birthday while on holidays in Cairns. The train had amazing views and was very well explained the whole trip. The Skyrail was out of this world, didn't even feel like I was still in Australia, an unreal experience. Would have liked a little more time in Kuranda to see more of the place but was lovely what we got to explore. I would definitely do it again.
Amazing experience had by all, would definitely do it again.

A must-do experience! Highly recommended. The experience that you will cherish forever.

One of the best tour with a mesmerizing view that you can't find it anywhere. A must-do tour, highly recommended as every single penny you spent on the tour is worth it. You'll see the great waterfall, Barron Gorge and the spectacular view of the rainforest.

A must-do when you visit Cairns, see the land at two different points of view.
Lynnette Wilkinson 1 month ago

A fantastic adventure. Catching the train from sea level and climbing the sides of the mountains like a mountain goat. Then to see the mountain from the heights of the cable-car. A feat of engineering to build the Skyrail. All staff were friendly and helpful.

A great day out and the views are wonderful on the train and the Skyrail.
Stephen Moad 1 month ago

The day started well with the people at Skyrail being very polite and helpful. COVID precautions were in place at the Skyrail terminal and walkways were well marked. The only issue was the crowding in the transfer bus from the Skyrail terminal to the train station. Once on the train spacing was not a problem with the train probably only about 33 % capacity. This made it very easy to go from side to side to take pics. Once in Kuranda a lot of places to get a bite to eat.. sit down places and take away. Prices were little on the high side. Easy to fill in the 2.5 hours before our 2 pm Skyrail departure. We left a little before 2 and no queue to get on. We stopped at both stations and it was worth the walk around and reading the informative signs. Once back at the terminal we visited the gift shop, as expected prices are on the high side. Overall a great adventure.

What an experience
Amy Savage 6 months ago

What an experience! We took the train up and the Skyrail back and I found them equally entertaining. Kuranda itself is also a lovely little place with amazing markets and food. I would recommend this trip to anyone whether in a family situation or just a couple it’s an awesome day.

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.
