Skyrail Education Programs
Skyrail’s Interpretive Ranger Option
Skyrail’s Interpretive Ranger Option allows your group to enjoy a personalised Ranger guided tour through Australia’s World Heritage protected Tropical Rainforests.
Skyrail’s qualified Rangers will meet, greet and accompany your group (we recommend a ratio of 1:20 Ranger to passengers) on a friendly guided tour of the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway experience.
At Red Peak Station, guests will be escorted on an intimate tour through the lush rainforest. The Ranger will identify some of the unique flora and fauna that comprise this ancient environment and answer guests’ questions.
At Barron Falls Station, Skyrail’s Ranger will accompany your group to spectacular look-outs of the Barron Gorge and Falls, revealing some of the fascinating, historic and cultural heritage of the area. You will also visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Skyrail’s Ranger will be onhand throughout the experience to answer questions.
Skyrail’s Rangers boast a wide range of tertiary qualifications, extensive rainforest knowledge and an appreciation and understanding of World Heritage values.

The seminar will be presented by a Skyrail Ranger or senior manager, who will engage the group in a 40 minute informative discussion about Skyrail’s sustainability vision and its continual improvements made since inception. Participants will have the opportunity throughout the seminar to ask the presenter questions.
