Tropical focus Hero
December 2015

Welcome to the latest edition of Skyrail's Tropical Focus,

This month we bring you some Australian rainforest facts. We are also excited to announce that we have partnered with the Cairns Regional Council for Tropical Tree Day.  Last month we participated in Planet Ark's National Recycling Week and ramped up our recycling efforts, something you can do at home! We also look forward to celebrating 40 years with Rainforestation Nature Park in 2016 and find out what's happening in the forest this month with Nature Diary. Plus if you are looking for family friendly accommodation in Cairns, kids stay and eat free at Holiday Inn Cairns Harbourside.

We look forward to welcoming you to Skyrail Rainforest Cableway: The World's Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.

Cairns Regional Council and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway are partnering for the annual Tropical Tree day, which is being held on Sunday 6th December at Cattana Wetlands, Dunne Road, Smithfield 8:00am - 10:00am.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway took part in the Friday File Fling during Planet Ark's National Recycling Week. We encouraged staff to recycle as much paper as possible. We generated 5 rubbish bins of paper and made 25 note books to be used in our offices.

Now in its  20th year, this established and highly regarded annual campaign continues to educate and stimulate behaviour change. 

Rainforestation Nature Park, located in Kuranda, will be celebrating their 40 th birthday in 2016! Locally owned and operated by The CaPTA Group since 1976, Rainforestation offers 3 unique experiences - the Koala & Wildlife Park, the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience, and the World War II Army Duck tours of the rainforest.  Keep an eye out on the Rainforestation Nature Park Facebook page.


Visitors to Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and the Tropical North Queensland rainforest have been capturing great memories of their experience and sharing them on Instagram! Each week on Friday we announce instaframe fan Friday wrap up on Facebook! So be sure to hashtag #skyrail #rainforest #cairns when visiting us and we might just pick you!

Dreaming of a white Christmas? Well, it seems even Santa is more interested in hitting the surf than the slopes this year. The jolly man in the red suit has ditched his sleigh for a stand-up paddle board and headed Down Under to enjoy a sun-filled Queensland Christmas escape.

Kuranda has long been known as a day tripper's paradise because there is so much to do. In fact there are way too many activities for just one day. Here are some tips on spending 48 hours in Kuranda - the village in the rainforest.

Fungi are often referred to as plants, but they aren't at all. Fungi make up their own kingdom which is quite different to both plants and animals. To learn more about the forest or read previous nature diaries, please click here.
