Embark on a fascinating journey of discovery over and through the world’s oldest continually surviving tropical rainforest with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.
Skyrail is a unique, world-class experience that provides a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage listed tropical rainforest.
Spanning 7.5 kilometres in the Barron Gorge National Park, Skyrail’s comfortable six person gondola cabins glide just metres above the canopy, providing spectacular views of the rainforest, Cairns, the Coral Sea and lush Cairns Highlands.
The Red Peak and Barron Falls Rainforest Stations also allow guests to descend through the canopy and explore the forest floor below.
At Red Peak Rainforest Station, complimentary ranger-guided boardwalk tours, interpretive signage and scenic lookouts unlock the secrets of this ancient tropical landscape that has evolved over hundreds of millions of years.
Discover more at Barron Falls Rainforest Station via the CSIRO Rainforest Interpretation Centre; marvel at the rugged beauty of the Barron Gorge and majestic Barron Falls; and learn about the area’s pioneering past at the engaging historical display.
Accessible to people of all ages and abilities, 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.
