SHARING STORIES FROM THE RAINFOREST
Discover stories created over millions of years.
Hi, I’m Ranger Fred,
My lifelong passion for the natural world, in particular tropical rainforests led me to relocate to Far North Queensland in 2019. As a Skyrail ranger in the Wet Tropics, I can align my previous life experience with sustainable tourism and continue studying Environmental Practice.
Fascinating geological events have enabled this environment to survive mass extinctions and ice ages. This ancient rainforest has remained home to an abundance of flora and fauna. The colors, sounds and scents of life in the rainforest fuel my enthusiasm to share this fascinating environment with a global audience.
Hi I’m Ranger Mike,
I am an expat from Austria and I found my paradise in Cairns, Australia. I am an avid landscape photographer and spend most of my time in the outdoors.
I love that my workplace is one of the most amazing eco-systems in the world (with some of the best views to match!) and I enjoy unveiling the fascinating history and mysterious stories of this magnificent rainforest with you.
Tropical rainforest is nature at its best and my favourite part of the ranger tour is when I see your enhanced appreciation of this incredible living green museum. I look forward to meeting you in the tropical rainforest at Red Peak!
Hi I’m Ranger Aisha,
I am fluent in English, Japanese and Chinese and am a very passionate Skyrail Ranger. I am lucky because there are not too many jobs in the world where your ‘office’ is world heritage protected tropical rainforest.
My favourite part of the ranger guided tour is imparting our knowledge about the Basket Fern. It’s an amazing story of how fascinating the rainforest is, as it’s more than just a plant but its own mini eco-system.
I would love to tell you many fascinating rainforest stories on a ranger guided tour with me at Red Peak!
Hi I’m Ranger Luke,
I Am a Zoologist from Victoria, with a passion for fauna and adventure. I previously worked in the Amazon Rainforest as a researcher but have relocated to Cairns to now work within the oldest surviving Rainforest on the Planet.
As a Skyrail ranger, my focus is now on education, preservation and enhancement, I hope to play my part in promoting positive change in cultural perception of the Rainforest and environmental importance.
I will be looking forward to learning alongside our guests as we take this journey together.
Hi I’m Ranger Noriko,
Originally from Japan, I have lived in Cairns for over 20 years. I love sharing stories about the beautiful tropical rainforest, especially the remarkable diversity of flora and fauna that can be seen at Red Peak.
My favourite rainforest creature is either the Southern Cassowary, an impressive dinosaur bird that saunters through the rainforest undergrowth, or the delicate Ulysses Butterfly, its striking blue colour standing out as it flutters through the tropical green rainforest.
I look forward to sharing more about these rainforest inhabitants with you on a ranger guided tour at Red Peak!
