Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Embark on a fascinating journey of discovery over and through the ancient Wet Tropics Rainforest.

Enjoy a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage listed tropical rainforest, gliding mere metres 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. The birthplace of kangaroos and home to the largest number of ancient song bird species in the world, this fascinating living museum is like a window back in time.

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 display.

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 in what is arguably The World’s Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.
