I recently had the opportunity to travel on the Cairns Skyrail. This is a full day experience which costs around $100.00 per head (depending where you buy the tickets). I would say immediately that for the experience, $100.00 is very well spent. The day commences with a ride to a little village called "Kuranda" in the hills above Cairns. The ride takes about 2 1/2 hours and travels along and old mining trail. The views and the trip are nothing less than spectacular. The train does not travel much faster than walking pace, but is very steep and absolutely picturesque. On arrival at Kuranda, there is amply sufficient time to walk around the village, have lunch and relax in the local pub for at least a couple of beers. The return trip by cable car is just sensational. The car travels above the rain forest and down the mountain by a direct route to the cafe at the bottom wher your car is waiting to return you to your hotel. All in all, a spectacular and sensational day.
