Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Skyrail is a unique rainforest experience taking guests on an unforgettable journey over and through Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests. Spanning 7.5km, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway traverses the McAlister Range, through the Barron Gorge National Park, taking guests on an amazing journey between its Smithfield and Kuranda Terminals.

Guests glide just metres above the rainforest canopy in Skyrail’s comfortable six-person gondola cabins using our downloadable interpretive app and audio guide to unlock the secrets of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest with the Skyrail.

Witness the wonders of the Wet Tropics rainforest from Skyrail’s unique vantage point, before alighting at Red Peak and Barron Falls to explore and learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor.

At Red Peak, guests can join regular guided boardwalk tours with a Skyrail Ranger as they share their knowledge of this ancient environment and answer guest questions. The Rainforest Discovery Zone provides incredible insights into this intriguing landscape whose prehistoric ancestry dates back approximately 130 million years! Guests can navigate the evolutionary history of the Earth via the illuminated timeline that snakes its way along the ceiling; discover amazing facts, flora and fauna of the rainforest displayed within the engaging floor to ceiling interpretive panels and immerse themselves in Australia’s most realistic jungle habitat of the primordial cassowary.

The Rainforest Interpretive Centre at Barron Falls provides a fun and informative learning experience for people of all ages. Guests can also visit the Historical Precinct and the innovative Edge Lookout that provides unimpeded views from the waterfall face, down along the gorge. The Edge Lookout also features a glass-floored ‘nerve tester’ inviting guests to stand on a transparent section of boardwalk suspended some 300 metres above the gorge.

Skyrail is The World’s Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.

Bookings are highly recommended. Combine your Skyrail experience with a journey aboard Kuranda Scenic Railway. Allow 3 hours in Kuranda Village.
