Skyrail Rainforest Cableway


Skyrail Rainforest Cableway takes you on an unforgettable journey over and through Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests, in the Barron Gorge National Park.

Spanning 7.5kms, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway has comfortable six person gondolas which glide just metres above the canopy providing spectacular views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and the Cairns Highlands. Your Skyrail experience also includes time at two stations.

At Red Peak Station, Skyrail’s Rangers provide guided boardwalk tours, sharing their knowledge of these ancient tropical forests amongst giant buttress roots, towering Kauri Pines and climbing wait-a-while palms.

Barron Falls Station has easy access walkways to three separate lookouts providing breathtaking views of the Barron Gorge and Falls. Here you can also visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre which Skyrail developed in conjunction with CSIRO to provide an informative and fun learning experience.

Multiple winner of the Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism, Skyrail is a premier tourist experience which is accessible to people of all ages and abilities, providing its guests with a truly unique rainforest experience, available nowhere else in the world.

Situated just 15 minutes from Cairns city centre and 50 minutes from Port Douglas, Skyrail is open every day from 0900, except Christmas Day and during programmed, preventative maintenance. Skyrail is The World’s Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.
