The Kuranda scenic railway is a spectacular journey with stunning views of our heritage listed rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls as it winds its way on a journey of approximately 90 minutes up the Macalister Range from Cairns to Kuranda Village.

Sit back and relax as you travel through 15 hand made tunnels and over 37 bridges and learn about the pioneering history of our Tropical North.

When you arrive in Kuranda village, enjoy free time exploring the markets, cafes, and galleries. With a visit to Rainforestation to complete your day.

Return from Kuranda via the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway which provides an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest as it soars silently only meters above the rainforest canopy.

You’ll glide just metres above the rainforest canopy before descending through the canopy layers and deep into the heart of the rainforest at Skyrail’s two mid-stations where you can enjoy Ranger guided boardwalk tours.
