What You Can Expect

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway Day Trip from Cairns

Combine the Skyrail with a trip on the Kuranda Scenic Railway

After pickup from your hotel in Cairns, board the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for Kuranda. It's a spectacular aerial ride above the treetop canopy, with two optional stops to enjoy a guided walk through the rainforest or visit the CSIRO Interpretive Centre.

On arrival at your destination you'll have free time to do as much or as little as you like; perhaps shop in Kuranda's Heritage Markets, or grab a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants or cafes (own expense). Upgrade your experience to include a visit to Rainforestation Nature Park, or gain entry to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park (included buffet lunch here is optional). 

If you'd like, enjoy a wildlife encounter at Birdworld, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary or Kuranda Koala Gardens (additional cost; payable direct).

Finish your day trip with a scenic rainforest journey aboard the Kuranda Scenic Railway back to Cairns, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel. Alternatively, you can travel 1-way to Kuranda by railway and return to Cairns by skyrail.

This was a enjoyable, informative day out. Friendly and helpful staff, lots to see and do. Butterfly sanctuary was a disappointment , in and out in about half and hour. Everything else great.

Excellent views on the skyrail! The rainforest was great. The history behind the Kuranda train was stirring, but don't expect to get a lot of pjhotos.

Amazing! Loved the cable car but wished we had paid extra for the diamond view with the glass bottom. Not sure if this was offered in this package and if it was I didn't realise what it was. The train was great too. Enjoyed my hour or two wandering around Karunda.

Up on the train and back on the cableway was the best way to do this tour. You must do the Rainforest walk when you arrive in Kuranda - starts near the Heritage Markets.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This is the way to get the best of both worlds; the train and skyrail. Would highly recommend hotel pickup as allows you to get a train up to Kuranda and then the skyrail back. You have more than enough time in Kuranda with this option. The skyrail is a truly unforgettable experience.
