Skyrail Rainforest Cableway
Skyrail takes you on an unforgettable journey over and through Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests, in the Barron Gorge National Park.
Spanning 7.5kms, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway has intimate six person gondola cabins which glide just metres above the canopy providing spectacular views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and the Cairns Highlands. Your Skyrail adventure includes time at two stations, where you can learn more about this fascinating environment on 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. Red Peak Station also has touch tables and displays on rainforest flora and fauna to help you learn more about the environment.
Barron Falls Station has easy access walkways, which take you to three separate lookouts providing breathtaking views of the Barron Gorge and Falls; here you can also visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. The centre, which Skyrail developed in conjunction with CSIRO, houses touch screen computers and an interactive audio-visual presentation, which provides an informative and fun learning experience for people of all ages on this unique environment.
Why not enhance your Skyrail experience further by selecting one of Skyrail’s educational programs to increase your rainforest awareness and knowledge? There are four to pick from and include options such as ranger presentations, a rainforest regeneration tree planting activity, a fully escorted ranger guided tour and other group activities.
