Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a 7.5-kilometre scenic tourist cableway running above the Barron Gorge National Park, in the Wet Tropics of Queensland’s World Heritage Area in Australia. It operates from the Smithfield terminal in Cairns to the Kuranda terminal on the Atherton Tableland. It has won more than 25 awards.


Barron Gorge National Park

The Barron River dominates the park. Rising from the rainforests of Mount Hypipamee National Park, the river winds 60km across the Atherton Tableland through one of Australia's highest rainforest belts. The river then enters the deeply-incised Barron Gorge, which forms a rugged, twisting trough between the Macalister and Lamb ranges. The river falls 250m onto the narrow coastal lowlands and flows to the Coral Sea, just north of the Cairns Airport. During the wetter months, floodwaters regularly create a spectacular sight at Barron Falls.

Rainforestation Nature Park is situated five minutes from Kuranda in Far North Queensland, Australia. Set on 100 acres in the midst of World Heritage rainforest, the park opened in 1976. The site had previously been used as a coffee and orange plantation. Rainforestation Nature Park is an award-winning attraction located in Far North Queensland, amidst the Kuranda rainforest.
