Location

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.

We took the railway up to Kuranda and the Cableway back down to Cairns
Marian Kalayil 2 months ago

We took the railway up to Kuranda and the Cableway back down to Cairns. Our trip included hotel pick up which was prompt and the driver was very informative! The whole experience was amazing but would especially highly recommend the cableway and the free tours in the rainforest. The staff was also very helpful in changing our return transfer back to the hotel to an earlier time when we finished early.

This tour was really environment-friendly and scenic trip
Arul Murugan Kanagaraj 2 months ago

This tour was really environment-friendly and scenic trip. The train ride went through gorgeous mountains and had a quite awesome view of gorges along the way. Return trip by cableway was pleasant overlooking rainforest. Kids really enjoyed it. Baron falls view from the bridge was scenic. The cableway was clean and I would recommend this tour for family.

We went up to Kuranda by train and came back by Skyrail
Wei Low 2 months ago

We went up to Kuranda by train and came back by Skyrail. The staff on the train were friendly and thoughtful offering us to move to another carriage for bigger space and offering to take photos of us with our own cameras. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway gives you an entire view of the rainforest.

The train trip up to Kuranda was relaxing although our tour bus arrived at freshwater station nearly 1 hour before the train departed so next time I may consider catching a taxi or Uber there
Brad Stubbs 4 months ago

The train trip up to Kuranda was relaxing although our tour bus arrived at freshwater station nearly 1 hour before the train departed so next time I may consider catching a taxi or Uber there. If three or more people it would actually be cheaper and for my wife and I probably worth the small difference in price. The staff on the train were friendly offering to take photos of passengers with their own cameras (not the businesses then sell a print for inflated price). Most of the views are out the right side and the train slows down when passing the best vantage spots to allow plenty of time for photos and stops at Barron falls to stretch your legs and get more photos. We had 3 and half hours in Kuranda before our Skyrail back which went very quickly with just a quick browse of the shops, then visiting the butterfly sanctuary and Birdworld. I don't know how people fit 3 parks in the time allowed from some package deals but they must rush around the various spots. The skycar back was good and we got to the skycar at 3pm as instructed on our ticket. There was no crowd so we got a skycar to ourselves and got off at both stops on the way back. The first stop with different angle of views of Barron falls was great but ensure you go both left and right on track s their are 2 lookouts with different angles of the falls. The 2nd stop didn't interest me though as basically just through the rainforest for 100m with no real views you haven't seen from the skycar Unless you are interested in seeing trees up close don't bother. Following the timetable given to us meant we arrived back at the pick up point an hour twenty before the bus was due to pick us up. We were able to swap out bus time at the ticket booth so we're luck but once again there wasn't a massive crowd in day we went so not sure if that is an option when busy. Overall a great day with few minor hiccups such as lack of time in Kurunda and excessive waiting time for pick up drop offs.

What an amazing experience
Simone Lalic 4 months ago

What an amazing experience, beautiful views and so many things today in Kuranda. The markets and lollies shops were so interesting to walk through and the Rainforest Station was duck tours were very informative and our tour guide was very entertaining. The cable car views were so breathtaking, a must do when visiting Cairns.

Awesome trip
Sarah Skehan 5 months ago

Awesome trip! Pick up from hotel to train station. All tour guides made sure you understood what the process was. Got the train up which was beautiful and plenty of time to explore Kuranda and complete the walks around the rainforest. The Skyrail down was also amazing with plenty of time to stop at Barron Falls to walk around. Bus transfer back to the hotel was also great.

Must do experience in Cairns
Hung Wei Chen 5 months ago

Must do experience in Cairns. Loved the historic train ride up to Kuranda and had time to wander around the Kuranda Town. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway gives you an entire view of the rainforest. Thank you Experience Oz for this unforgettable memory!!

Fabulous day trip
Kim Speziali 6 months ago

Fabulous day trip. Experience Oz made it so easy with booking online and at a great price for the whole family and extra adults. Easy to find the booth to pick up the tickets and staff were super friendly. We loved the train ride up to Kuranda and so much to do with the kids there. Skyrail is just beautiful. And then an easy bus ride back to the train station.

We really enjoyed this tour
Naomi Willis 7 months ago

We really enjoyed this tour. We were picked up promptly and all the staff were helpful and ready to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this tour. The train, Kuranda village and the Skyrail were all amazing. There is so much to see and do. A great day out for all ages.

Kahlia Pepper Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Experience Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Tropical North Queensland’s “must do” attraction. Glide above the World Heritage listed canopy and discover the world’s oldest continually surviving rainforest..

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.
