Kuranda By Cableway

By Cableway

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a unique experience that glides over the canopy of Australia’s World Heritage listed Wet Tropics Rainforest. A Skyrail Experience will take approximately 1½ hours one way, or 2½ hours return. This allows for 20 minutes at each of the two rainforest mid-stations Red Peak and Barron Falls. These two rainforest mid-stations, provide the opportunity to learn about this ancient environment via rainforest boardwalks, ranger-guided tours, scenic lookouts, interpretive signage and the CSIRO Rainforest Interpretation Centre.
