Today we went to Kuranda which is known as the Village in the Rainforest. It is situated 380m above sea-level on top of the McAlister Range, in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforests.
You can travel there two ways. We went up on the train and came back down on the sky rail.There are lots of shops at the village . We had a picnic and did lots of shopping.

The Cairns-Kuranda Railway was constructed between 1882 and 1891. It is amazing that they built the rail track in the rainforest. Hundreds of men were employed to build the 15 hand-made tunnels and 37 bridges. The train journey was very slow and we had a couple of stops to look at the view and the waterfalls

The sky rail was scary as you came down in gondolas above the tree tops and you are very high up.We had to change cable cars as we came down and were able to go to some look outs to see the view.
