Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Cairns Reviews

  • Gorgeous views, but nothing to rave about if you've been in a cable car before. 2 separate cable cars connect over 7+ km which is a marvel feat yet its hindered by views that get old by the first km. Skyrail also has a Diamond option that prompts you to pay more to sit in a gondola with a glass bottom, I wouldn't bother wasting the money. Good activity in Crains, but I'd recommend a Great Barrier Reef excursion over this!

  • View is amazing. Wish we had taken the open air basket for even a better experience. Staff is wonderful and very helpful. Worth the time and expense.

  • Skyrail was excellent. Value for money. The views over the rainforest was breathtaking. But do recommend if you can get a capsule to yourself. I found with my family of three and two others was very crowded.

  • Amazing view of rain forest from cable car. Well managed and friendly staff. Worth trying this ride.

  • Great views. Worth doing. We did the diamond view. Takes bit longer to wait for the cable car, but great views through the bottom.
