At 7.5km long, Skyrail is one of the world’s longest gondola cableways, offering a bird’s-eye view over the tropical rainforest between Cairns and Kuranda. Allow about 90 minutes for the one-way trip, including two stops en route, featuring rainforest boardwalks with interpretive panels and lookouts over the mighty Barron Falls .

Upgrade to a glass-floored 'diamond view' gondola (one way/return is an extra $12/18 for adults and $6/9 for children); real adventure seekers can't go past the amazing, open-air Canopy Glider (an extra $100 per person, age restrictions apply).

The last departures from Cairns and Kuranda are at 2.45pm for a return journey and 3.30pm for one way; transfers to and from the terminals are available.

Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Railway offer combination tickets (adult/child from $109.50/54.75).
