Cairns' #1 Attraction
There are two ways to experience Queensland’s Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforests: by scenic rail and by sky rail. Of course we want to do both. So we catch the historic train in the morning - which takes us to Kuranda, the picturesque “Village in the Rainforest” and its famous arts and craft markets - then climb aboard a gondola for our ride back home. It’s a dynamic day that leaves an imprint of coastal mountain views, steep ravines, tumbling waterfalls and tropical plants and trees seen from every possible angle.
