R & R Kuranda Scenic Railway & Skyrail Rainforest Cableway – Self Drive

Australia’s Tropical Rainforests are recognised as one of the most ecologically fascinating natural areas in the world. Start with a beautiful scenic drive down the coast to the Skyrail Terminal from Port Douglas. After parking your car you will be picked up from Skyrail's Caravonica station and transferred to the Freshwater Train Station. Here you will have some time to view the museum and grab a coffee. The train journey takes about one and a half hours including one stop at the Barron Falls Station. Two and a half hours free time is perfect to spend in Kuranda, and will allow you to visit two markets and a few wildlife sanctuaries such as the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, Bird World Kuranda and the Koala Gardens. Glide just metres above the canopy of Australia's World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest on Skyrail.  Two mid-stations, Red Peak and Barron Falls, provide the perfect opportunity to explore and learn more about this ancient environment. Ranger guided tours are available on the boardwalk at Red Peak station whilst at Barron Falls station you can visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre and see spectacular views of the falls at the three viewing platforms.  Take your time at these stops as your car is parked at the bottom of the skyrail ready for you to jump in and either drive back to Port Douglas or explore Cairns or Palm Cove.
