Yep, this is pretty cool. Its high, if your not into heights you might struggle, the view is fantastic and the staff are great. We did the return trip on the cable car, I recommend doing the cable car one way and the train the other way, regret we didn't organise ourselves better!

My Partner & I went on the skyrail just outside of Cairns. I am not a fan of heights but didn't want to miss out... I am glad I did it as the views are amazing. The heights didn't worry me at all and felt secure at all times. A definite tip... do it early in the morning if you don't like the heat! we went up and back on the skyrail. Pricing is up there, but definitely worth it for the views. All staff were great and only once did we have to share a gondola with another 2 people.

This was a great experience. A must do while you're in Cairns or Port Douglas. Like most people, we went up to Kuranda via the Skyrail and back on the railway. We stopped at each station and walked around - no more than 10 min at each stop. I found the cost (approx $100 return) to be overpriced, but so are most tourist attractions in the area.

* Great views of the rainforest! (that you can't see anywhere else)
* The free 45-min walking tour with Jeremy at Red Peak Station was so informative!
Note: Cablecar runs every minute or so. At non-peak time, it's easy to get a ride (reservation time is flexible)
