Australia Attractions and Sight Seeing




Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway in Queensland

Skyrail is Australia's most outstanding example of a commercial tourism venture and unique natural environment which exist in total harmony. Skyrail has received numerous awards since the opening, and has also been voted Australia's best major tourist attraction.

There are 32 towers over the 7.5 kilometer (4.7 mile) route. The tallest tower is 40.5 meters (133 feet) high and are all built in isolated clearings of 10 meters (33 feet) square. All four stations were constructed in existing clearings and helicopters were used so that no roads were built for construction or operation of Skyrail.

Maximum speed is 5 meters per second (18 km/h or 11 mph) but, usually, the cableway runs slower, so that passengers have more time to enjoy the Skyrail experience.
