Skyrail Launches Diamond View Gondolas

Skyrail News: November 2013


Skyrail Rainforest Cableway in Cairns is pleased to announce the official launch of our latest product ‘Diamond View’. Special reinforced glass floors have been fitted to 11 cabins offering our guests an amazing view directly down onto the canopy of World Heritage Listed Barron Gorge National Park.

“We are very excited about the launch of our Diamond View gondolas” said Max Shepherd, Managing Director, Skyrail. “This adds a spectacular dimension to the Skyrail experience and undoubtedly has a huge ‘wow’ factor that will leave a lasting impression on our guests” said Mr Shepherd.

The glass floors were specially made for Skyrail in France and shipped over before being retrofitted to existing gondolas by our maintenance team and a technician from POMA, USA. The glass is over an inch thick and is composed of a 28mm triple layer of laminated tempered glass and polyvinyl butyral. Each gondola can seat 5 people.

“Our aim was to provide guests with the option of enhancing their Skyrail experience in an inexpensive yet exciting way. In addition to the main ticket price, passengers can upgrade to the Diamond View gondolas at a cost of $10 per adult and $5 for children one way” said Mr Shepherd.
