How much does skyrail or train station parking cost?

Hi Cairns experts,

How much do I expect to pay for parking at Skyrail and/or the train station?

Thanks!

As stated above, parking at Skyrail is free.

The train station is located in the city's main shopping centre so parking there will cost a little but you can safely park your car on the public streets behind the shopping centre for free (the streets on the city side of the shopping centre have metered parking also)

There is a second station you can board the train in Caravonica and it has a complimentary car park and shortens the train ride by about 40 min's (a good thing IMO)

Your biggest expense will be getting the shuttle between the Skyrail and train station to get back to your car......

Parking at the Cairns Central Shooping Centre is free. Retain you train ticket and display it when leaving the shopping centre carpark. We arrived before the shopping centre opened (aprox 8am) and park directly above the Railway Station. Stairs and a lift take you to the departure platform.

Cairns Shopping Centre is normally only free for 3 hours, then you have to pay.

Be aware of confusing info on the brochures. Some say Caravonica & others Freshwater or Stratford. I was there this week & there are NO handicapped parks at the city main railway but at Freshwater there is. I was surprised that a govt railway station did not have any handicapped parking spaces at all. Not even to drop off or pick up passengers.

No parking costs at Freshwater at all.
