Skyrail Tours

Set in the stunning Atherton Tablelands, 25 kilometres North West of Cairns, the quaint mountain village of Kuranda is a quintessential paradise. This friendly village is hemmed in by lush tropical rainforest, creating a secluded hideaway, where artistic locals welcome their visitors with open arms. Kuranda is bursting with eco-friendly attractions, ensuring a great day out for all who visit, but it’s the trip there that will really take your breath away!

As you relax on the infamous Skyrail or Scenic Railway, you’ll be awestruck by the beauty of the mountain-framed view. The ancient emerald rainforest of Barron Gorge National Park is punctuated by cascading waterfalls dropping into deep gorges and accompanied by the song of native birds and other wildlife species – many of which you will spot along the way.

The Scenic Railway is an absolute joy, reminiscent of bygone eras where wooden interiors and passenger comfort were the norm. Winding over bridges and through tunnels, you’ll be able to appreciate the surrounding beauty at a slow, relaxing pace.

The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is an experience like no other. Floating above the rainforest canopy, you’ll marvel at the stunning vista from a bird’s eye point of view, which extends 360° and even incorporates the distant ocean. You’ll never forget your Skyrail experience!
