Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise

Experience the beautiful Kuranda Village and Rainforest! Take the train up to Kuranda. Return on the Skyrail, then finish the day with a stunning Sunset Dinner Cruise. Sit back, relax on the Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise package.

Kuranda Train and Skyrail – AM

The journey to Kuranda is an exciting one.  Just 25 km north west of Cairns in Far North Queensland. This picturesque mountain retreat is surrounded by world heritage rainforest. The perfect start to your Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise package!

Travelling by the scenic rail you will learn about the pioneering history of the tropical north.

During the 90 minute journey, climb over 40 small bridges and through many dark tunnels while winding your way from Cairns to Kuranda.

You will be in awe of the excellent views of the world listed rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls within the Barron Gorge National Park.

Whilst Kuranda Scenic Rail gives visitors an amazing view of the rainforest at ground level, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway provides an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest as it soars silently only meters above the rainforest canopy.

You’ll glide just metres above the rainforest before descending through the canopy layers and deep into the heart of the rainforest. At Skyrail’s two mid-stations you can hop off and enjoy a relaxing walk through the rainforest along the boardwalk.


As at July 2020, Skyrail is currently not operating.  This tour itinerary has changed, and you will now be transferred from Kuranda at 3.00 pm by air-conditioned coach to your Cairns accommodation.
