Today in Cairns I went to Kuranda the tourist town at the top of the rain forest. interesting rain forest, and way cool to zoom over the tops of it in the gondola.
The trip up, the train was built in 1884 with pick and shovel
. There is more information on the train on the way up . but there are a couple of informative stops on the way down in the sky train. if you are afraid of heights think twice on this. doing both was definitely the way to go.
