1 Day Green Island, Kuranda Rail and Skyrail Tour from Cairns

Adults from $216/pp

Spend half the day at Green Island and the other half gliding over the rainforest with Skyrail plus a ride on the the famous Kuranda Scenic Railway.

​In the morning you will cruise to Green Island on the ‘Reef Rocket’ a modern air-conditioned 78ft catamaran. Green Island is the only coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef to feature a rain forest which makes it very unique. It’s almost impossible to be disappointed with its white sandy beach and abundance of coral and marine life. If you’re looking for something a little different you also have the choice of taking a self guided walk along one of the many tracks leading through the National Park. Hire of canoes, beach umbrellas, sun lounges, surf skis, beach volleyball gear, stand-up paddle boards, wet-suits and flotation aids can be arranged on the island. 

The afternoon brings forward a exhilarating way to see the Kuranda Rainforest. The Kuranda Skyrail is a unique rainforest experience taking you on an unforgettable journey over one of Australia’s World Heritage Listed Tropical Rainforest. You will soar above the rainforest in a six-person gondola cabin which provides uninterrupted views of the Kuranda region, Cairns, the Coral Sea and the lush highlands. The Skyrail experience runs 7.5kms long and features two mid-station platforms where you can step out of your gondola and take time to learn more about this fascinating environment surrounding you by participating in a Ranger-guided boardwalk tour and by taking a visit to the Rainforest Interpretation Centre.

After your ride on the Kuranda Skyrail you will board the Kuranda Scenic Railway for an amazing journey back to Cairns through a lush green paradise. You will view dense rainforests,steep ravines and flowing waterfalls as well the Barron Gorge which offers spectacular views of Cairns. You will be seated in a Heritage Class carriage for the duration of your ride. The Heritage Class carriages offer old world charm in the design and decor. They are made of authentic timber, and may be up to 90 years old.
