“If you're going to experience an ancient rainforest then get on top of it!”

Everyone says ‘unique’ but Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a unique way to see the rainforest because you’re skimming the top of it. This journey over and through Australia's World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests, spans seven and a half kilometres in the Barron Gorge National Park. The six-person gondola cabins glide just metres over the canopy providing panoramic views of the rainforest, the Coral Sea and Cairns Highlands. Your adventure includes time at two mid-stations, where you alight from the cableway learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor and breathe it all in. At Red Peak Station, Skyrail's Rangers provide guided boardwalk tours sharing their knowledge on these ancient tropical forests, amongst giant buttress roots, ancient Kauri Pines and climbing wait-a-while palms (which have lots of patience). Barron Falls Station has pathways and lookouts over the Barron Gorge and Falls, historical displays and a Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Developed in conjunction with CSIRO, the Rainforest Interpretation Centre houses interactive touch-screen computers and audio-visual displays. Skyrail is multiple winners of the Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism.
