What to Expect
Travel reference:

Stretching 7.5km through pristine rainforest, Skyrail provides the most amazing aerial views of North Queensland's ancient tropical rainforests.

Upon arriving at Kuranda, take the Kuranda Scenic Railway back to Cairns, passing through the World Heritage protected tropical rainforest and unique waterfalls, admiring the spectacular Barron Gorge. You'll eventually arrive back at Cairns Central Railway Station, just a short walk from most Cairns city hotels.

  • Q:Should I make my way to Cairns Central Railway Station if I choose to take Kuranda Scenic Railway first?
    A:Hi there, thank you for your question. There is no need for you to make your way to Cairns Central Railway Station if you choose to take Kuranda Scenic Railway first. You need to check in at the Skyrail Ticketing Counter at Freshwater Train Station where your Railway tour begins. If you have any other questions, please feel free to send an email to service@kootrip.com. Kind regards, Hilary
  • Q:we are on a cruise with Norwegian and will be in port (Yorkey''s Knob on the 24th arriving I port at 10:00AM and staying overnight and leaving port at 5:00PM). Would we be able to do this skyrail and railway experience on the 25th of November and be able to book transportation from the port in Yorkey''s Knob, and be back on boark by 4:30PM for our departure time. Look forward to hearing from you
    A:Hi there, thanks for your question. The earliest railway time back to Cairns station is 2:00 pm, and the railway experience takes one way for around 2 hours. I'm afraid you cannot make your way back to the port by 4:30 pm. So the best is to allow a full day for this. If you have any other questions, you can send email to the service@kootrip.com. Thanks.
