Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Enjoy a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest, gliding above the pristine canopy before descending to explore the forest floor. Learn about ancient plants and animals that existed before dinosaurs roamed the earth and whose descendants can still be seen in the rainforest today.

Complimentary Ranger guided boardwalk tours, the immersive Rainforest Discovery Zone, engaging interpretive signage and scenic lookouts at Red Peak unlock the secrets of this mystical landscape. Discover the CSIRO Rainforest Interpretation Centre at Barron Falls. Marvel at the Barron Gorge and Falls from The Edge Lookout and learn more about the area’s pioneering past at the historical precinct.

Ensure you get the most out of your experience by downloading Skyrail’s multi-lingual Interpretive App and Audio Guide that places the story of Queensland’s ancient rainforest directly in your hands.

Easily accessible from Cairns, encounter, discover and immerse yourself to unlock the secrets of the oldest tropical rainforest on Earth.
