Cairns Skyrail Adventure

Cairns Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Breath taking views from the Cairns Skyrail gondola make the journey a true experience.

One of the worlds greatest attractions must be the awesome Skyrail journey over the roof of dense rainforest just north of Cairns, Queensland.

You can take a return journey across the top of the world or combine it with either a train ride or road trip to the beautiful village of Kuranda. Whatever option you do decide to take, it really is one of the worlds greatest journeys.

There are a couple of stops along the Skyrail route where you change cable cars and at one stop can have a guided tour through the rainforest with experienced rangers. There’s no better way to learn about the importance of the rainforest and gain a better understanding of the environmental role it plays in our world.

Of course a stop at the magnificent Barron Falls is a sight not to be missed. During the norths “Wet Season” or after some heavy rain the Barron Falls is absolutely spectacular. The force of the water is something to be seen. Right now it is terrifyingly awesome!

Take the time to have a look at this video that Cains Skyrail has put together. A picture is worth a thousand words, and the Skyrail video perhaps says it all.

I absolutely loved the spectacular views coming down the mountain.

Queensland is such a wonderland and we are lucky that there is so much pristine beauty that we can all enjoy. Come on up to Cairns and see the rainforest and reef. How great it is to have two natural wonders so close to each other.
