Spanning 7.5 kilometers (4.5 miles) over pristine rainforest, it allows you to explore the wonders of an ancient tropical rainforest and learn about one of the most botanically fascinating and diverse areas on earth. Gliding just meters above the rainforest canopy in six-person gondola cabins, you get to see spectacular views of the Coral Sea, Cairns city and tropical Mountain Ranges.</p> <p>The Skyrail is widely recognised as being at the forefront of environmental tourism and consistently wins awards as one of the country’s top tourist experiences.</p> <p>Offered as an optional excursion on many Contiki Tours visiting <a href="/contikipedia/articles/cairns">Cairns</a>, the Skyrail is also a great way to travel either to or from the must-visit <a href="/contikipedia/articles/kuranda">Kuranda</a>, just outside of Cairns.</p>
