Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Embark on a fascinating journey of discovery over and through the Wet Tropics Rainforest, home to the world’s oldest continually surviving tropical 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 at the Red Peak and Barron Falls.

Relax as you become immersed in the sights, sounds, smells and tranquillity of one of the most botanically fascinating areas on earth.

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, 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 and learn more about the area’s pioneering past at the historical display.

Easily accessible from Cairns city, encounter, discover and immerse yourself in what is arguably The World’s Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.
