Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Smithfield, Cairns Area

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a unique rainforest experience, taking you on an unforgettable journey over and through Australia's World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests.

Spanning seven and a half kilometres in the Barron Gorge National Park, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway glides just metres over the canopy, its comfortable six-person gondola cabins providing spectacular views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and lush Cairns Highlands. Your adventure includes time at two mid-stations, where you can alight from the cableway learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor.

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. 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, providing an engaging and fun learning experience for people of all ages.

Multiple winner of the Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism, Skyrail is The World's Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.
