Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Discover ancient tropical rainforest and journey into one of the oldest continually surviving tropical rainforests on earth. Skyrail is a unique rainforest experience taking you on an unforgettable journey over and through World Heritage listed Rainforest.

Spanning 7.5 kilometres in the Barron Gorge National Park, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway glides just metres over the canopy, its comfortable six person gondola cabins providing spectacular views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and lush Cairns Highlands and includes time at two mid-stations.

At Red Peak Station, Skyrail’s Rangers provide guided boardwalk tours sharing their knowledge on these ancient tropical forests, amongst giant buttress roots, ancient Kauri Pines and climbing wait-a-while palms. Barron Falls Station has pathways and lookouts over the Barron Gorge and Falls, historical displays and Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Developed in conjunction with CSIRO, the Interpretation Centre houses interactive touch-screen computers providing an engaging and fun learning experience for people of all ages.

Skyrail is the must do rainforest experience in Tropical North Queensland and is located 15 minutes from Cairns city centre and 50 minutes from Port Douglas.
