    Latest Questions about Skyrail & Kuranda Railway Combo

    We (2 adults and a 14 year old child) arrive into Cairns Airport at 09:15 on Tuesday 4th of July. Would it be possible to do an activity that day with you?
    best regards

    Hi there,

    We are looking at the Skyrail and Kuranda Railway Combo and we are travelling on the Celebrity Solstice. (We are also looking at doing the Green Island Reef Cruise Half Day - Reef Rocket the first day were are there and then this tour the second day) I know for the 1st one where pick up will be but what about this tour? Thanks for your reply.


    Heya, You can opt in for either Cairns or Port Douglas transfers and they will collect you from your accommodation around 8am (that varys depending on where you are staying).

    What is the elevation of the Kuranda Skyrail? Is it safe to take the Skyrail after scuba diving the previous day?


    Hi Marci, the highest point of the Skyrail is at Red Peak Station which is 545m above sea level. It is not recommended to go scuba diving and then go on the Skyrail as you are not advised to go over 300m following 24 hours of diving. I would recommend doing the Skyrail & Kuranda Railway combo first and then your diving the next day.

    Just wondering about the two different departure times from Cairns, regarding the Skyrail and Kuranda Railway Combo.

    If leaving at the earlier departure time of 8.30am does that mean you go on skyrail earlier with more time during the stops and in Kuranda (or are people waiting around till 10.30 in that part of town)?

    Is the return time at the end of the day the same regardless of what time you depart in the morning?

    Thanks for your help in verifying.



    Hi Rose, yes that is correct if leaving on the earlier departure at 8.30am you will go on the Skyrail earlier and generally catch the train back from Kuranda at 2pm. If you select the later 10.30am departure then you will get on the Skyrail at that time and we book you on the 3.30pm train from Kuranda. You can spend as long as you like at the stops on the way up the Skyrail, there is no restriction as to how long you can stay there for you will just need to make it to Kuranda for your train departure time.

    Can you book the early morning departure with the later train departure?? So you be on the 8:30 Skyrail and the 3:30 train??

    Hi Lisa, yes you certainly can come back on the later train from Kuranda. You will just need to request this in the "additional information" field when you make your booking otherwise you will be booked on the earlier train.

    Hi ,just wondering if we can book it when we get to Cains?


    Hi Angela, yes you certainly can book the Skyrail and Kuranda combo once you arrive in Cairns however bear in mind that activities do book out days, sometimes weeks in advance and therefore your desired days of travel may not be available once you get there.

    Can I book on-line just a Skyrail ride and a Kuranda Train ride without the day tour?


    Hi Katrina, this is the option you would select to do that. There is no tour as such. There are several stops along the way on the Skyrail which are optional for you to get off at and do the tours/walks at each stop. If you choose not to then you arrive straight at Kuranda Kuranda from the Skyrail it is your own free time before coming back on the train.
