Hours of Operation
Skyrail operates daily except Christmas Day and during planned preventative maintenance, from 9:00am – 5:15pm.
Skyrail operates in Barron Gorge National Park and is therefore unable to operate at night. However, for special events it is possible to extend Skyrail’s hours of operation during daylight, for a set fee.
Please ask Skyrail’s Sales & Marketing department for more information.
A one-way Skyrail experience takes 1½ hours, while a return Skyrail experience takes approximately 2½ hours.
These timings comprise approximately 45 minutes travelling time on the cableway in each direction and approximately 20 minutes at each of Skyrail’s two rainforest mid-stations.
