Skyrail, Kuranda and Scenic Railway

Cairns is surrounded by a natural wonderland, the world famous Great Barrier Reef on one side and equally beautiful rainforest hinterland on the other. Tear yourself away from the water and be rewarded with one of the world’s most beautiful rainforest experiences. Hop in a six-person gondola cabin and take a skyrail ride with breath taking views over the rainforest as you glide just metres above the canopy. Explore Kuranda ‘the village in the rainforest’ with arts and craft market stalls shaded by giant fig trees. Then, board the Kuranda Scenic Railway for a spectacular return through rainforest-clad mountains, through tunnels and over bridges with sheer cliff faces and panoramic views of the Coral Sea and Cairns.
