Tour Description

Enjoy spectacular and breathtaking views from Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and immerse yourself in the Tropical Rainforest, discover the pioneering history of the Kuranda Scenic Railway on Tropical North Queensland's most popular tour!

This tour is for passengers who require a coach to pick them up from their accommodation (in Cairns or Cairns Northern Beaches) and drop them off at their accommodation (in Cairns).

Skyrail operates in most weather rain or shine, and is the world's most beautiful rainforest experience.

One-way Kuranda Scenic Railway
Return coach transfer from/to Cairns or Cairns Northern Beaches accommodation (excludes Yorkey's Knob, Holloways and Machans Beaches).

This spectacular experience travels over bridges and through tunnels hand-made by North Queensland's pioneers over 100 years ago. Traversing the World Heritage listed rainforest of the Barron Gorge National Park this is one of the world's great railway journeys.

Skyrail is the World's Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience. A 7.5km cableway, Skyrail glides just metres over the canopy of Australia's World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests. Two mid-stations, Red Peak and Barron Falls, provide the perfect opportunity to explore and learn more about this ancient environment on boardwalks and at the Rainforest Interpretation Centre.
