Getting Here – Skyrail Rainforest Cableway




Skyrail is a unique rainforest experience taking you on an unforgettable journey 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, which provide spectacular and uninterrupted views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and the lush Cairns Highlands.

Witness the wonders of the world’s oldest continually surviving rainforests from Skyrail’s unique vantage point, before alighting at Skyrail’s two rainforest mid-stations to explore and learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor.

At Red Peak Station, qualified Rangers provide regular guided boardwalk tours sharing their knowledge of this ancient environment and answering visitor questions, while the Rainforest Interpretive Centre at Barron Falls Station provides a fun and informative learning experience for people of all ages.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is open every day except Christmas Day and during programmed maintenance, from 9.00am to 5.15pm. Bookings are highly recommended. For more information please phone (07) 4038 5555 or visit
