Multiple winner of the Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is The World's Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience. It is located just 15 minutes from Cairns city center and 50 minutes from Port Douglas. This 1-day program includes the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway experience and the Kuranda Scenic Railway Self-Drive tour. Enjoy an unforgettable journey on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway that takes you over and through Australia's World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest in the Barron Gorge National Park. Glide just meters above the canopy along a 7.5-kilometer span in a comfortable 6-person gondola. Take in views of tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and lush Cairns Highlands. You’ll stop at Red Peak Station for a guided boardwalk tour with a Skyrail Ranger, to learn about the ancient tropical forests. You’ll also make a stop at Barron Falls Station, where you’ll find pathways and lookouts over the Barron Gorge and Falls, historical displays and a Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Developed in conjunction with CSIRO, the Interpretation Centre features interactive touch-screen computers that provide an engaging and fun learning experience for people of all ages. Combine your journey with a trip on the Kuranda Scenic Railway. Built over 120 years ago, this historic train winds its way through the mountains between Kuranda and Freshwater Station. Enjoy scenic views of mountains rising from sea level to 328 meters, spectacular waterfalls and the stunning Barron Gorge. The journey includes English commentary and a commentary companion guide with information on the history of the railway’s construction, a trip map and a map of Kuranda. This package includes a 1-way transfer from the Freshwater Railway Station back to your vehicle at the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway Smithfield Terminal where you began the day.
