  Kuranda jungle walk
by bluesmama

Kuranda is great for a day trip out of Cairns. It is a small village nestled in the rainforest in the mountains outside Cairns.
I bought a combi- ticket and took the skyrail up to Kuranda and the scenic train back down again.
We had a great day there, just walking around looking at all the different shops. There's a Birdworld and an Australian Butterfly Sanctuary in Kuranda but we had seen so many butterflies and parrots from the skyrail that we gave it a miss.
There are also many good walks in the forests around the town.
