Cairns Rainforest Tours

The second “must do” activity in Cairns is a journey into the ancient World Heritage listed tropical Rainforest. Travellers have several options when it comes to a rainforest experience in and around the Cairns area. There is the famous Kuranda experience that combines the historic Scenic Railway tour with the unique Skyrail Rainforest Cableway that provides visitors with the opportunity to journey into some of the oldest rainforest on earth. The other option is Cape Tribulation (The Daintree Rainforest), 140km from Cairns, which is considered one of the oldest rainforest in the world; or a more relaxing option is the beautiful Atherton Tablelands where travellers visit the rainforest but also lakes and waterfalls.

Kuranda Scenic Railway & Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Kuranda can be done in a half day or a full day, it all depends on how long the person would like to spend in Kuranda. To experience Kuranda, visitors usually combine the Train and the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, both of which take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. In addition to pristine rainforest, the Kuranda experience also offers stunning views of Cairns and a great opportunity to take some nice photos of the surrounding area.

Cape Tribulation - The Daintree Rainforest

Cape Tribulation is located about 2.5 hrs north of Cairns so be ready for a long day. The tour starts early in the morning and finishes in the beginning of the evening. On the road to Cape Tribulation travellers have the opportunity to stop and see some beautiful locations such as the Rex lookout, Port Douglas town, Mossman Gorge Rainforest, the Daintree River, Cape Tribulation beaches and much more. This tour is fully guided and It's recommended to any age and any level of fitness.
