An exciting journey
Just 25km northwest of Cairns in far north Queensland (1180ft above sea level) and surrounded by world heritage rainforest is this picturesque mountain retreat.
Combining the Scenic Train journey with the world famous Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a great way to experience this World Heritage listed tropical rainforest and Kuranda.
Travelling by the scenic Train you will learn about the pioneering history of the tropical north. During the 90 minute journey climbing over 40 small bridges and through many dark tunnels while winding its way from Cairns to Kuranda.
You will be in awe of the excellent views of the world listed rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls within the Barron Gorge National Park.
Whilst Kuranda Scenic Train gives visitors an amazing view of the rainforest at ground level, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway provides an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest as it soars silently only meters above the rainforest canopy.
Stretching 7.5 km through the tropical rainforests of North Queensland, Skyrail provides people with a unique opportunity and a world first, to see and experience the rainforest in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
You’ll glide just metres above the rainforest canopy before descending through the canopy layers and deep into the heart of the rainforest at Skyrail’s two mid-stations where you can enjoy Ranger guided boardwalk tours.
