Today we went up into the mountains to the small town of Kuranda. Kuranda is about 30Km from Cairns and is reached via the Kuranda scenic railway. The train winds it way through the rain forest covered hills and takes about 90 mins to reach the town. The views looking back towards the coast were absolutely spectacular. Kuranda itself is a lush tropical paradise. We had approx. 2 hours in the town which wasn't really long enough. You could spend a fortune in all the upmarket, boutique style gift shops. After about 2 hours looking around the town we went on to Rainforest Station.
