Kuranda Scenic Train, Rainforestation and Skyrail Experience

The Kuranda Scenic Train, Rainforestation and Skyrail Experience is a spectacular journey. You will enjoy stunning views of our heritage-listed rainforest. View steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls. Wind your way on a journey up the Macalister Range from Cairns to Kuranda Village.

Your Journey Begins

Sit back and relax.  You will travel through 15 tunnels and over 37 bridges. Learn about the pioneering history of our Tropical North.

When you arrive in Kuranda village, enjoy your free time. Explore the markets, cafes and galleries. You will visit Rainforestation Nature Park. Learn to throw a boomerang and cuddle a koala! Take part in an Aboriginal dance show and enjoy a ride on the Army Duck. The Outback Restaurant is styled as a traditional Aussie Outback venue and is where you will enjoy your delicious BBQ Buffet Lunch.

Heading Home

Return from Kuranda via the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Get an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest. Soar silently only meters above the rainforest canopy.

Glide just metres above the trees! Gently descending through the canopy, you will emerge deep in the heart of the rainforest. Stop off at Skyrail’s two mid-stations where you can enjoy Ranger guided boardwalk tours.
