Skyrail & Kuranda Railway Combo


Latest Questions about Skyrail & Kuranda Railway Combo


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.
