Complimentary guided boardwalk tours are available throughout the day. Skyrail’s qualified Rangers are on-hand to provide fun and informative rainforest tours sharing their knowledge of this fascinating eco-system.

Rangers will help you identify some of the forest’s more unusual native plants species and will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Rainforest displays and interpretive signage provide you with additional information on the native flora and fauna.

Make sure you take the time to relax and absorb the rainforest atmosphere before re-boarding the cableway and continuing your Skyrail journey to the second station, Barron Falls.

Between Red Peak and Barron Falls Stations you will be treated to some of the most pristine areas of this World Heritage environment; a million different shades of green and splashes of vibrant colour making nature’s pallet complete and picture-perfect for your journey.

Look out for the electric blue Ulysses butterflies as they dance through the canopy foliage accompanied by a chorus of calls and whistles from native birds such as Cockatoos and many insects.

On approach to Barron Falls Station you will enjoy spectacular views of the majestic Barron Gorge, a deep chasm lined with dense rainforest vegetation and its mighty, granite walls. Look down the Gorge to see the hydroelectric station, there will be more information on this at your second stop.
