We have booked the train / light rail tour for the day. Unfortunately the weather was frightening and it rained all day. We arrived at the Skyrail center in Smithfield and the bus transfer to the freshwater station was good. After the train trip we had a walk around Kuranda and had lunch at a local cafe. We booked tickets late in the afternoon to return via Skyrail. Luckily they let us return early. Staff were pleasant. The commentary you can download to your phone was great. Unfortunately the weather was so bad that we could only see a few meters ahead. Still, the trip on the hedge was enjoyable. At the two stops down they were equipped with umbrellas and the trail was good, but the visibility was too bad. If the weather was clear, do it again, it would be great.

The views from the staff were absolutely spectacular and very friendly and helpful. It was a great day but was disappointed with the many Kuranda closures. There were no other markets except the traditional markets. The main markets were closed. Could have wanted to tell the visitors that this is what we really wanted to do
Keynes is the world famous rainforest, take the rainforest high-altitude cable car, the best choice to visit the whole rainforest, you can see the whole rainforest from the high-altitude lush scenery, absolutely let people feel, lament the nature of the magic.
great experience . the skyrail will take you 30 mins for one way trip.Never dispointment .
The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a pricey attraction but worth its money for e.g. a day tour with your family. The view from the skyrail is phenomenal and the city of Kuranda charming with its many cafe's and shops.
Amazing ride on top of the rain forrest canopy, a nice day trip from Cairns.
One of the coolest things you can do while in Cairns is ride the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Set aside some money for the excursion and ride it through a lush rainforest. Sure you might not see any animals but you'll see an assortment of flora that boggles the mind. Some of the trees are only native to Australia so it was really cool to check them out along with the views of one of the last preserved rainforests on earth. Enjoy the ride!
Nice transportation to explore. You can on and off the cableway to stop and look at the waterfalls. Don't pay extra for the upgraded cableway. The regular cableway is good enough to get an aerial view.
