In early March we experienced the Skyrail, it was an excellent trip with outstanding views and very friendly staff. With the downturn in tourists from overseas I noticed the Skyrail was quiet. If the operators gave Australian pensioners a discount they can at least help keep the numbers up in the quiet times. We had to wait for our pension before enjoying the experience, a pity

An absolute MUST to do. All Skyrail staff so friendly, professional and helpful. And the experience was incredible! To be able to see the beautiful Rainforest that way was mind blowing... breathtaking... spectacular! The experience and staff will not disappoint

Amazing place another great attraction of this town aimed to remove money from your wallet. This sky rail is simple amazing and the view as your coming over the top of the mountain back towards the coast makes you think you could be in a plane. The other way is just amazing views of the bush and the Baron River
