Skyrail Special Notices

2017 Skyrail Maintenance Closure

At Skyrail, we pride ourselves on our high standards of safety and reliability. To maintain these high standards, it is necessary to undertake preventative maintenance works, which sometimes requires the closure of the cableway for periods of time. Please be advised that following our shut down for preventative maintenance on Monday, August 21st, we have identified additional unplanned works that need to be carried out before the start of the wet season. As a result, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway will close for two (2) extra days in October 2017, as outlined below:

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway will be closed on the following dates in October 2017:

MONDAY 16 OCTOBER AND FRIDAY 20 OCTOBER

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, however, we remain committed to maintaining world-class standards of maintenance and safety and are unable to carry out these unavoidable works without ceasing operations. The above dates have been carefully selected to minimise disruption and we have consciously avoided closing on those days when Kuranda Scenic Railway is shut for programmed maintenance. Skyrail’s Reservations Department will continue to operate as normal during this time.
