SHARING STORIES FROM THE RAINFOREST
Discover stories created over millions of years.
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 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!
Hi I’m Ranger Tim,
I’m an avid wildlife photographer, specialising in frogs and reptiles. I am a passionate advocate for this extraordinary tropical rainforest and as a Skyrail Ranger, I enjoy working with likeminded people in promoting sustainability and conservation.
I find rainy days are some of the best at Red Peak and I especially love the misty atmosphere. For me, it resembles a prehistoric landscape, like walking into a living time machine and you often get to hear some interesting wildlife sounds as well!
Join me on one of my ranger guided tours at Red Peak to learn more!
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 Claire,
I am fluent in Chinese and English and have lived in Cairns for many years now. I enjoy working in the ancient tropical rainforest, being surrounded by such a diverse range of flora and fauna while soaking in fresh air everyday.
As a Skyrail Ranger, I enjoy sharing stories of the ancient rainforest with you and improving our greater understanding and respect for nature together.
I look forward to imparting my rainforest knowledge with you on a ranger guided tour at Red Peak!
