The Cairns Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is one of Tropical North Queensland's true must-do experiences, taking you on a journey aboard a comfortable gondola up, up and away above the canopy of the stunning, Wet Tropics World Heritage listed Rainforest. As the gateway to the iconic "village in the rainforest", Kuranda, the Skyrail spans a 7.5km distance and features several stops for you to disembark and explore along the way, while providing outstanding views over the lush rainforest canopy and all the way out to the waters of the Great Barrier Reef beyond. The massive expanse of the rainforest takes on a whole new perspective when viewed from this angle, and aboard the Skyrail you'll be able to take in the likes of cascading waterfalls, numerous different types of trees and ferns, and glimpses of regional wildlife. With an overall length of around 45 minutes for the ride itself - but far longer if you take the day to disembark and explore - there are few ways from "getting to A to B" in the world that can offer the type of viewing experience that Queensland's Skyrail Rainforest Cableway can offer, so if you're visiting the Cairns and Port Douglas region then be sure to book YOUR rainforest adventure online today.
A must-do when visiting Cairns. The opportunity to alight at 2 stops and walk thru the oldest rainforest. Staff is well organised and polite.
There is an opportunity to alight at 2 stops along the way. Toilets at all stops. Enjoy a walk along the boardwalk and be in the oldest rainforest in the world. If you do not wish to get off the trip is about half an hour to the Kuranda village, where there are many stalls and places to eat.
This was an absolutely thrilling experience. The views across the entire coastline as we ascended the mountain was fantastic. We loved the attractions and exploring Kuranda.
I would absolutely recommend this adventure to everyone who visits Cairns. It is the best experience and I really loved visiting Barron falls and the quaint Kuranda village. The gondolas offered exceptional viewing and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
MUST DO EXPERIENCE! Highly recommend! The best day out :)
We had the best time & experience. We will be recommending the Skyrail to everyone we know who visits Cairns! They have it set up so well and it was such an enjoyable and interesting experience. Can’t wait to take my kids on the experience one day!
