Today was an unbelievably full day. We headed to the rainforest area north of Cairns known as Kuranda. We first travelled on the Kuranda Scenic Railway through tunnels and over bridges and passed magnificent waterfalls and river gorges. We arrived at the Kuranda village in the rainforest which featured a beautiful Butterfly Sanctuary a nd a world heritage market that featured handicrafts and gifts. We transferred to a Nature Park for lunch and an Army Duck Rainforest tour. We travelled on amphibious vehicles for a thrill ride through the rainforest where our guide pointed out different species of flora and fauna. We then attended an Aboriginal Experience with singing and dancing and then was followed by a Dreamtime a Walk where the performers coached us in throwing boomerangs,, hunting with spears and playing a didgeridoo. After that we were taken on a guided tour to see crocodiles, wombats, snakes, dingoes, Tasmanian devils, and a cassowary and we also had an opportunity to hand feed kangaroos and wallabies. We then boarded a spectacular Skyrail cable car that took us through the rainforest area from top to bottom passing panoramic views of the whole area. What a day, and did I mention the heat and humidity. Unbelievably hot. We did have a brief rain shower during our amphibious vehicle drive which was extremely refreshing!
