Walking and driving instructions

 

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is roughly a 15 minutes’ drive away from Cairns, or 50 minutes’ from Port Douglas. From Cairns travel 13km north-west on the A1. On a round-about turn left onto SR 91. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway car park is on your right, 200m away from the round-about. The road is a sealed one.

The car park is a big one, and has toilets.

Stoney Creek Falls is accessible via Kuranda Scenic Railway, so you will need to buy a ticket for a cableway and railway. The prices vary from 55$ to 148$. The package includes 1.5hrs Skyrail Rainforest Cableway experience (including 3 lookouts taking in the Barron Falls and Barron Gorge National Park) and 1.5hrs Kuranda Scenic Railway experience (including Stoney Creek Falls).

The train passes very close to the falls and, unfortunately, it doesn’t stop here. You will be able to take photos while the train is moving.

Stoney Creek Falls is a permanent waterfall. Beautiful all year round. Best time to visit – Dec to Mar.
