Kuranda Train & Skyrail Info
Visit the beautiful Village of Kuranda, nestled amongst pristine World Heritage Listed Rainforest. Choose between Train up and Skyrail down or Skyrail up and Train Down.
Train Up Skyrail Down
This is the most popular option. Having the sun behind you for the Skyrail journey down in the afternoon gives you a great view over Cairns, out to Green Island and the Great Barrie Reef.
- 09:00 Cairns City Hotel pick up
- 09:30 Train departs from Cairns Central Station to go to Kuranda

- 13:45 Depart from Kuranda by taking Skyrail Rainforest Cableway
- 15:30 Pick up customer at Smithfield station (bus may stop here for 15 minutes)
- 16:00 Cairns City Hotel drop off
Skyrail Up Train Down
Travelling down to Cairns on the train gives you the option of finishing at Carins Central Station in Cairns CBD.
It can also be a more pleasant journey as the train engine doesn't need to work as hard coming down the hill.
- 10:00 Pick up from Cairns (Depends which hotel)
- 10:45 Departs from Skyrail Smith field Station, head to Skyrail Station
- 12:15 Arrive Kuranda, customer will have free time in Kuranda

The train ride up was a little hot and squishy, but definitely a great view as long as you get the window seat. The skyrail back was also stunning, but we would have loved the option the upgrade to the glass bottom cable car.

What a great way to see our beautiful country
Great day, the experience says it all. What a great way to see our beautiful country. Initially I thought the train ride would be too long but there was always something to see. Very happy with our experience. And the local pub food was absolutely delicious and super quick service.

I was thankful I booked the train in advance
I was thankful I booked the Train in advance, was great to skip the long queue at the station.
Allocated time at Kuranda was just not long enough, so we had to forfeit our transfer and pay extra for an uber as a later pick-up was not offered.
