Maintenance Closures

At Skyrail we pride ourselves on our high standards of safety and reliability. To maintain these standards, it is necessary to undertake preventative maintenance works, which sometimes requires the closure of the cableway for periods of time. 

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway will be closed on the following dates in 2019:

Tuesday 7th, Friday 17th & Monday 27th May

Monday 3rd, Monday 17th & Monday 24th June

Please note that Skyrail's Reservations Department will continue to operate as normal on all the above dates.  

See the Barron Falls as never before – new Skyrail Lookout

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is pleased to announce a significant new enhancement to the multi-award winning attraction that will provide guests with the opportunity to experience the beautiful Barron Falls and gorge as never before.

The project involves the construction of an innovative new lookout at Skyrail’s Barron Falls Rainforest Station that will provide unimpeded 180-degree views from the waterfall, down along the gorge.

It will be installed using the latest in low-impact construction techniques to protect the surrounding environment.

Preliminary site works at Barron Falls Rainforest Station are currently underway. As part of the project, two of the existing lookouts will be closed to the public.

The third lookout will continue to be open to guests throughout the duration of works, providing ever popular views of the waterfall and surrounding landscape.

It is anticipated the new lookout will be completed by January 2019 subject to favourable weather conditions during the construction period.
