Speewah is just up the road from Kuranda (the village in the rainforest) and is often overlooked as a tourist destination but I believe it is worthy a visit.
Hikers may be aware of it as the Djina-Wu Track leading to and from the Douglas and Smith tracks start/leave from Speewah approx 750 m from the Speewah Tavern.
Anyway! what a beautiful place where you are far away from the usual tourist hub of Kuranda.
You do need a car if you are not a hiker. The camping ground is a fair hike from the Highway and is a tad isolated with minimum facilities. Only tent campers allowed and don't forget to bring your food supplies because there are no corner shops.
The tropical rainforest canopy is stunning and be careful of the cattle grids on the graded dirt roads.
Stop off on the way back and have a drink or something to eat at the Speewah Tavern/pub.
Directions: Turn left from the Kennedy Highway a few klms after the Kuranda traffic lights,follow the road to the camping ground.

Kuranda envirocare information centre is really beneficial to the traveller to find all the local information for the area.
They have very good maps and heaps of suggestions and places to visit.
They may not be open from noon to 5pm occasionally for reasons of their own I suppose it could possibly be culteral.The normal operating hours are daily from 9am-8pm.
The information centre is home for an active Landcare and Environment group who will offer you information on local walking tracks and places of interest for all levels of fitness and ages.
The group also runs a gift/convenience shop to help them finance their business.You can purchase arts and crafts of the local community.
The wet tropics display is wonderful and was created by the community and has insects,snakes,birds,plants and seeds found in the rainforest,it constantly changes with different things collected and added from the forests.

The Kuranda train station is a tropical plant paradise---it is such a joy to arrive on the scenic railway from Cairns,the train provides spectacular views from the ranges to the ocean and in the wet season the Barron River Falls are fantastic.
