Skyrail gives the opprtunity to see the rain forrest from adifferent angle. Everything else on this tour is just expensive and a waste of time. At least the part of the city we have seen is just a shopping mall. The scenic train is slow,...More

If you want an awesome view of cairns, jump on the skyline. We did it both up and down, and you can hope off on the stops to see the rainforest and waterfalls. It's really well run and worth a look!

It's for the bus between the railway station and the skyrail depot where your car is. It's a fair distance away.

We did Skyrail up and train down which I think is the most popular combination. Skyrail is one way not to miss.

I would suggest you check for tours to the Daintree Rainforest. It isn't far from Cairns, so you should be able to find one that suits the limited time you will have in the area.
