We holidayed in Cairns in January 1998 just before Cyclone Justin arrived. During that time we visited Kuranda and The Daintree Rainforest.

Below are shots I took on those outings.


The Daintree Rainforest is located on the Daintree River north of Port Douglas.


The Bloomfield River where the Bloomfield Track crosses.


This was as  far north as our trip to Cape Tribulation and Daintree National Park took us.
We stopped here to have lunch. 





Another view of our beautiful lunch stop in the Daintree/Cape Tribulation National Park, looking upstream from the crossing.




The pictures above of the waterfalls and the train were taken from the train on our way up the range to Kuranda.

It was a really wet day and the rain provided more flow than normal, producing the waterfalls which gave us such a wonderful show. 



Looking back as our train meandered up the Kuranda Range.


At the top of the range is Kuranda railway station.
We left the train and visited the numerous Flea Markets. After being saturated, in more ways than one, we boarded the Skyrail and enjoyed the view as we passed above the tropical treetops. The view from the Skyrail as we came over the treetops and out into open space was well worth the trip.
As far north, east and south as the eye could see were patterns of green and blue as the sugar cane met the forest and the forest met the sea.

Here is a link to the Skyrail Website.
