Cairns Skyrail gives you a whole new perspective of North Queensland's rainforest. With an amazing boardwalk tour and the village to explore.
Cairns Skyrail – Discover Tropical North Queensland’s Rainforest Experience
Cairns Skyrail is located 20 minutes north of Cairns. The Skyrail spans between the towns of Caravonica and Kuranda. Cairns Skyrail is the perfect way to see the rainforest. Offering great flexibility for people who wish to visit the “Village in the Rainforest”. You will get to explore Kuranda’s daily craft markets.
Not only beautiful but sustainable too! Cairns Skyrail is an excellent example of ecotourism. Specifically engineered for breathtaking views, there’s no better way to see the rainforest! As the Skyrail takes you high above the canopy, your view of the rainforest will be completely unrestricted.
Stop off at not one but two different stations to explore the rainforest from the ground. Red Peak Station provides a beautiful walk along a boardwalk through the trees. Barron Falls Station provides a spectacular view of the famous Barron River Waterfalls.
