As they say, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is simply the world’s most beautiful rainforest experience. Close to Cairns, Skyrail is a tourist 'must do' and is a gondola ride with boardwalk stops through the rainforest to Kuranda.

This world first in environmental tourism takes guests over Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest.  Guests observe, absorb and learn about one of the most botanically diverse and fascinating areas on the planet. The gondolas travel over 7.5km of pristine rainforest.

The multi-award winning Skyrail Rainforest Cableway has been voted Australia’s Best Major Tourist Attraction. A one-way Skyrail experience will take approximately 90 minutes to complete and for a return experience you should allow 2½ hours. Skyrail’s Smithfield Terminal is just 15 minutes drive (north) from Cairns city. There are regular coach transfer pick-ups and self-drive passengers will also find Skyrail easily accessible with plenty of parking.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway offers a complete day tour adventure or it can be combined as a package with other Cairns tourist attractions like Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. It is also an extremely wheelchair-friendly experience for visitors with a disability.

Here's a link to the official Skyrail website or the tour desks at Rydges Tradewinds, Rydges Esplanade Resort and Rydges Plaza Hotel can book for you a well as look after all your accommodation needs.
