Kuranda is a small town in the mountains not far from Cairns, in Queensland. I was there last year in July. It’s common to take the train up to Kuranda and then take a gondola ride down. You go through and over some really beautiful rain forest. The town itself is actually just a tourist trap these days sadly, although there are a few amusing things to see. Food in town was overpriced and very disappointing.
The gondola ride back down is probably the highlight of the journey. You can get off mid-journey at one of three (I think) stations and go for a walk in the rain forest.
Thanks for stopping by – May the Journey Never End!
