The Skyrail Experience

The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway spans 7.5kms over Queenslands far north tropical rainforests.

The Skyrail gondolas are just metres above the rainforest and descend through the canopy layers to go deep into the heart of the forest. Skyrail has two rainforest mid-stations for passengers to get off and on to experience the tropical rainforest.
