Skyrail cable car

You are here Home  > Queensland  > Cairns and environs  > Kuranda >  Skyrail cable car

If you’ve slept in and missed the train, you can always take the Skyrail cable car – the world’s longest gondola cableway that runs to Kuranda above the rainforest for 7½km from Smithfield, north of Cairns. It is possible to get off at points along the way to explore the rainforest.

The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway operates 8.15am–5.15pm daily. As you would expect, this is an expensive transport option at $49 for a one-way, $73 return or $107.50 returning by train.

    On vous dit que vous pouvez Le prendre toutes les 90 secondes mais qu'il faut réserver un ticket horaire et sur place on doit passer pile à l'heure. En haut il y a un village très moyen. Pas à Faire

    Skyrail終着駅でKurandaの玄関口。Kuranda Scenic Raliway Sta.は少し離れた場所ですが、歩いてすぐの場所にあります。駅構内はお土産屋も充実しています。
