The rainforests of far north Queensland boast unparalled biodiversity, abounding with many unique plant species as well as possums, tree kangaroos, bats and a huge range of birdlife. But you needn’t necessarily rough it to get a taste of this tropical paradise. The Skyrail Cableway takes you on a 4.5 mile (7.5 kilometer) journey in a gondola above and through the tree treetops of the rainforest. Along the way you’ll see the dramatic Barron Gorge and stop off at 2 different points to explore boardwalks which snake through the canopy.
Informative signs along the route mean this is a great way to find out more about a fascinating environment while disturbing it as little as possible. Arriving at Kuranda, you have the chance to visit an aviary and Australia’s largest butterfly sanctuary.
