Skyrail Rainforest Cableway Tours

314 reviews
One of the most scenic ways to travel, the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway takes travelers over and through the ancient Queensland rain forest in enclosed six-seater gondolas before arriving at the mountain town of Kuranda, home to a number of wildlife attractions. The 90-minute, one-way ride covers 4.7 miles (7.5 km) of pristine World Heritage-listed rain forest and is often combined with a return ticket on the Kuranda Scenic Railway.

The journey includes time at two mid-stations: the Red Peak Station, where rangers lead guided boardwalk tours, and the Barron Falls Station, home of the CSIRO Interpretation Centre and the mighty Barron Falls. Bring your camera to  capture the tropical landscape, and keep an eyeo ut for bright blue Ulysses butterflies.
