Cairns Day 3 - Behind The Scenes - Skyrail
A day in Cairns, Queensland, Australia on the Skyrail.

Skyrail & Tjapukai

Skyrail CairnsVoted Australia’s best major tourist attraction for three years in a row, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is one of the most special and unique rainforest experiences in the world. They’re both favourites of ours too!

Skyrail’s Cairns departure terminal is in Smithfield, 15-minutes drive north from Vision Cairns Esplanade Apartments. The 7.5km Skyrail rainforest cableway travels between Cairns and Kuranda showcasing panoramic views of World Heritage-Listed Wet Tropics rainforest, and the Coral Sea. You can leave your Gondola at two mid-stations to see the mighty Barron Falls and learn more about the rainforest from the forest floor. We recommend you travel to Kuranda on the Kuranda Scenic Rail and return to Cairns on Skyrail because the views are better on the way down.

Tjapukai Aboriginal Culture CairnsNext door to Skyrail’s Smithfield terminal is Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Far North Queensland is rich with Indigenous Australian culture and history and a visit to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park is an excellent way to meet some of these fascinating people and experience a taste of their incredible culture through bush medicine and food demonstrations, dancing, storytelling and performance.
