A bit about the Kuranda Scenic Train and Skyrail:

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

Sit back and relax while you take in the views. Meanwhile, audio commentary will explain the unique history of the Tropical North.

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! Since 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 further: 

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

So much to see!

Residents of the rainforest include:

  • Twelve hundred species of flowering plants
  • Eight hundred different rainforest trees
  • Stunning orchid species including the King Orchid
  • Strangler figs and basket ferns
  • Cassowaries and freshwater crocodiles
