Spanning 7.5kms, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway has intimate six person gondola cabins which glide just metres above the forest canopy providing spectacular and uninterrupted views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and the Cairns Highlands. Your Skyrail adventure includes time at two mid-stations, where you can learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor. At Red Peak Station Skyrail’s Rangers provide regular guided boardwalk tours sharing their knowledge on these ancient tropical forests. While easy access walkways at Barron Falls Station take you to three separate lookouts providing breathtaking views of Barron Gorge and Barron Falls; here you can also visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. The centre, which Skyrail developed in conjunction with CSIRO, houses touch screen computers and interactive audio-visual presentations providing an informative and fun learning experience enhancing your appreciation of the rainforest. Voted Australia’s Best Major Tourist Attraction, Skyrail is recognised not only as a premier tourist experience, but a world leader in eco-tourism providing guests with a truly unique rainforest experience available no where else in the world. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is situated just 15 minutes from Cairns and 50 minutes from Port Douglas. It is open every day except Christmas Day and during planned, preventative maintenance. Hours of operation are 9.00am to 5.15pm; bookings are taken in 15 minute intervals from 8.15am until 2.45pm for a return journey or 3.30pm for a one-way journey.
