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. It is the perfect way to see the rainforest. At the same time, this tour offers great flexibility for people who wish to visit the “Village in the Rainforest”. Not to mention you will get to explore the famous Kuranda Markets.
About the Cableway
Not only beautiful but also sustainable too! Cairns Skyrail is the perfect example of ecotourism. Specifically engineered to make the most of the views, there’s no better way to see the rainforest! Not to mention, as the Skyrail takes you high above the canopy, giving you unrestricted views!
Stretch those legs!
Stop off at not one, but two different stations to explore the rainforest from the ground. Red Peak Station boardwalk has a self-guided option. On the other hand, if you have time, why not join one of the Guided Walks. Likewise, the Barron Falls Station provides a birds eye view of the Barron River Waterfall.
