Balloon, Skyrail & Kuranda Rail

Most visitors to Cairns and want to fit the most they can into their holiday - and our early morning flights make it easy to combine a Kuranda tour in the same day. Experience both Skyrail & Kuranda Scenic Railway - one of the most unique rail journeys in Australia.

There is no better way to start your day than with a dawn balloon flight as the world below you gradually awakens. Fly as high and far as weather conditions permit, aiming for a minimum 30 minute flight with stunning views of the Atherton Tablelands.

The Skyrail experience offers a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest as you glide just metres above the pristine rainforest canopy before descending to explore the forest floor at the Red Peak and Barron Falls.

Free time is allowed to explore Kuranda, a quaint village in the Rainforest, including the Heritage Markets which operate daily.

The Kuranda Scenic Railway is an iconic two hour rail journey that meanders its way through the Barron Gorge National Park. Enjoy breathtaking scenery, towering waterfalls and deep ravines a the train winds its way through 15 hand-made tunnels and over 37 bridges. Hear about the journey and the incredible history of the railway line through the multi-lingual audio commentary.
