Kuranda Scenic Train and Skyrail

This tour combines two of the regions most popular tours:

Both the Historic Kuranda Scenic Train and Skyrail gondola over the rainforest. Let the adventure begin…

Kuranda Scenic Train

The Kuranda Scenic Train winds through the Kuranda Range for 37km. Your 90 minute journey will take you through tunnels, past steep ravines and cascading waterfalls within Barron Gorge National Park.

Sit back and relax while you take in the views whilst listening to the audio commentary explaining the unique history of the building of this historic railway line.

The Skyrail

Not only beautiful, but sustainable too! The Skyrail is an excellent example of ecotourism.

Specifically engineered for breathtaking views, there’s no better way to see the rainforest!  As the Skyrail takes you high above the canopy, your view of the rainforest will be completely unrestricted.

Stop off at not one but two different stations to explore the rainforest from the ground.  

Red Peak Station provides a beautiful walk along a boardwalk through the trees.  Barron Falls Station provides a spectacular view of the famous Barron River Waterfalls.
