This is a way up or down the mountain as you visit the artist community of Kuranda. It’s a nice day trip to go have lunch and visit some of the art galleries. The Sky Rail offers expansive views of the area.

This is a great experience for all and an enjoyable way to see this amazing forest. I felt safe on the sky rail, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this experience.

Skyrail gives the opprtunity to see the rain forrest from adifferent angle. Everything else on this tour is just expensive and a waste of time. At least the part of the city we have seen is just a shopping mall. The scenic train is slow,...More

We enjoyed the ride and seeing the rainforest at ground level. We have trains like this at home so it was probably a less unique experience for us, but the history they told during the ride was interesting. The waterfall view was not as amazing...More

We did Skyrail up and train down which I think is the most popular combination. Skyrail is one way not to miss.

I would suggest you check for tours to the Daintree Rainforest. It isn't far from Cairns, so you should be able to find one that suits the limited time you will have in the area.
