Enjoy the tranquility of the rainforest as you soar above the treetops on a skyrail tour in Cairns.
As we had 2 days in Cairns I chose to book the Kuranda train/skyrail through one of the tourist bureaus and saved myself $35 from what the cruise line was charging.Kuranda has 3 small markets where you can buy a clothes,jewelry and nick knacks.There is a butterfly sanctuary, a dangerous / venomous animals park and bird park. With the sky rail there are a couple of places where you can get off and go for a short walk through the rain forest.
Cairns being a launching pad for the Great Barrier Reef there are lots of ways of seeing the reef.From scenic flights - plane and helicopter $$$ - to small charter boats with scuba / snorkeling gear at the ready.Or you can go to one of the islands and snorkel around there.There's also white water rafting,paragliding,for the more adventurous.
