Rainforest Storytellers

Skyrail Rangers

Sharing stories from the Ancient Rainforest


At Red Peak you’ll descend through the canopy to explore one of the most ancient and isolated pockets of rainforest on Earth, where unique plants and animals have survived the forces of nature and time, evolving over millions of years.

A Skyrail Ranger will guide you along the rainforest boardwalk and share their fascinating rainforest stories and intimate knowledge of this amazing environment.

Our Rangers have an important role to play in ensuring the ongoing management and wellbeing of the rainforest and surrounding area; a role they undertake by;


  • Collaborating with rainforest researchers at James Cook University by supplying data of every flowering and fruiting tree within the Skyrail precinct.
  • Working in conjunction with the Wet Tropics Management Authority and Queensland National Parks to promote effective management of the Barron Gorge National Park.
  • Applying assisted natural regeneration techniques in the bushland around the Smithfield (Cairns) Terminal to promote native vegetation.
  • Ensuring Skyrail is a world leader in ecotourism.
