I really should holiday more often. There is something very relaxing about being in the bush, away from it all. Once can even hear the name “Winston Peters” and not feel a violent reaction.
A view from the train (I missed the sign about not sticking things outside the window) starting the journey up.
A waterfall we passed.
A great view of the rainforest as the train continues to climb.
Walking along one of the tracks at Kuranda.
And on another track (in a burst of enthusiasm I walked all six of them)
Walking back alongside the river. Looked a great place to picnic, but I kept imagining crocodiles lurking, even though I know there are none this high up.
The market/shopping strip in Kuranda.
A view of the river from the skytrain/gondola going back.
A 600 year old kauri tree.
And finally a view of the local area as we descend.
Highly recommended for anyone who comes up to this part of Queensland.
