Skyrail Rainforest & Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Tour

Join the team at Let’s go Cairns for a fantastic day trip exploring with the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and the Kuranda Scenic Railway!

We’ll start the day by picking you up from your hotel accommodation and head to the award winning Skyrail Rainforest Cable where you’ll uncover breathtaking rainforest views!

Next you'll see amazing sights of the Barron Falls and hear the fascinating and informative commentary of the location's history.

We then arrive at the picturesque village of Kuranda. Located in the tropical North Queensland rainforest, Kuranda is well known for its amazing arts and crafts, bustling markets, and spectacular scenic views!

Here you’ll enjoy up to 4 hours of free time where you can explore the village’s famous markets, have a bite to eat, visit the local wildlife park or simply relax and stroll the welcoming village streets and see where the afternoon takes you.

After your free time, we’ll embark on the Kuranda Scenic Railway! This return journey is approximately 2 hours and travels back along the Kuranda range with alternative views back past the Barron Falls and more gorgeous views as we make our way back to Cairns.

The railway journey includes a souvenir booklet and a full commentary on the region and is the perfect way to unwind and transition back into city life after a magical day of nature, fun and exploration!

Skyrail Rainforest & Kuranda Scenic Railway

Absolutely amazing and would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairns. Bookme.com.au provided great priced tickets for me and my family. Everything was well organised.

Moderate Trip

Overall, the price of the trip is reasonable, but the trip itself doesn’t include a drop off back to the hotel as it stated to be, thereby we have to walk all the way back to our hotel.

Great experience- Must see!

From the beginning to the end, it was well organised with punctual pick up, good communication and friendly service. The sky rail was fantastic and it felt very safe, I do recommend for those that get motion sick to take half a tablet! We chose the Skyrail up to Kuranda & train trip back, & it was an excellent choice! Highly recommend Bookme.
