You haven't seen Cairns if you haven't done a trip on the Skyrail Cableway. The Skyrail Cableway spans 7.5 kilometres from Smithfield just outside Cairns up to the Village of Kuranda. There are two stations you can stop at on the way during the trip. A world first in environmental tourism the Skyrail takes you up the mountains skimming across the top of the lush tropical rainforest as well as giving you sweeping views over the landscape back towards Cairns. You will see, hear and smell the rainforest on your scenic trip to Kuranda Village. One way the journey takes around 1.5 hours including stops at Red Peak Station and Barron Falls Station.
