Skyrail Info

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway:

You’ll glide just metres above the rainforest canopy before descending through the canopy layers and deep into the heart of the forest at Skyrail’s two rainforest mid-stations (Red Peak & Barron Falls) for the ultimate tropical rainforest experience.

  • Travel in a 6 person gondola cabin with panoramic views as you glide above the rainforest canopy on the amazing 7.5km journey.
  • Gondolas leave the station continuously; bookings are taken in 15 minute intervals
  • One-way Skyrail Experience will take approximately 90 minutes to complete
  • Return Skyrail experience should take approximately 2 ½ hours, this includes spending time at the two rainforest mid-stations.
  • Skyrail operates daily from 9am to 5.15pm with the last departure scheduled for 3.30pm (closed Christmas Day)
  • Skyrail's Canopy Cafe and retail shop located at the Smithfield Terminal is open from 8.00am.

Plan to spend 20-30 minutes at the two Rainforest mid-stations:

  • Barron Falls:  Enjoy spectacular views of the Barron Gorge, state-of-the-art Rainforest Interpretation Centre, lookouts and historical displays.
  • Red Peak:  Lush rainforest surroundings including the towering 400 year-old Kauri Pine. Interpretive boardwalk tour with Skyrail Ranger available throughout the day.

Skyrail Smithfield Terminal is located just 15 minutes drive from Cairns and 50 minutes from Port Douglas. Self-drive passengers will find Skyrail's location easily accessible with free car parking.

Diamond View Gondolas upgrade

Be amazed by the spectacular tropical rainforest from the unique viewing perspective of Skyrail’s glass floor Diamond View Gondolas.

11 Diamond View Gondolas not only provide guests with panoramic views of the tropical landscape, coral sea and rainforest canopy, but also offer the unique perspective of looking straight down from the treetops to the forest floor below.

Diamond View gondolas carrying a maximum of 5 passengers, will depart stations approximately every 7 minutes and passengers travelling on them will enjoy dedicated boarding queues at all terminals and mid-stations.


Kuranda Village:

This ‘Village in the Rainforest’ has numerous attractions including a butterfly sanctuary, a colourful bird aviary, koala park, walking tracks and a diverse range of markets (open every day from 9am to 3pm), shops, cafes and restaurants (extra costs).

We recommend allowing yourself two to three hours in Kuranda.
