    The Kuranda Scenic Railway is a spectacular journey offering views of World Heritage Listed rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls within the Barron Gorge National Park. This famous railway winds its way from Kuranda to Cairns.
    Allow 1.5 hours for this journey.

    Kuranda Village is a quaint little township in the rainforest, situated where both Skyrail and the Kuranda Scenic Train journeys terminate. Kuranda Village is famous for arts and crafts and indigenous artefacts and the excellent attractions of the Butterfly Sanctuary, Koala Gardens and Bird World.

    Passengers travelling with Tropical Horizons Day Tours may obtain discount entry to these attractions (show your boarding pass).  Both The Original Kuranda Markets and the Heritage Markets are open daily. 

    You will journey up the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway which spans 7.5kms over pristine rainforest.
    Gliding just metres above the rainforest canopy in comfortable six-person gondola cabins, the Skyrail journey will immerse you in an intimate rainforest experience. Enjoy the stunning rainforest scenery, panoramic views of the Cairns’ tropical region and the glittering waters of the Coral Sea.

    During your Skyrail journey you will have time to explore two on the rainforest mid-stations - Red Peak and Barron Falls, where you can explore the forest floor on boardwalks, view the scenic look-outs and spend time in the state-of-the-art Rainforest Interpretive Centre.

    A one-way Skyrail Experience will take approximately 90 minutes to complete.  You can spend as much time at you like at Skyrail rainforest mid-stations enjoying the facilities and rainforest atmosphere. Plan to spend approximately 20-30 minutes.
