Tjapukai and Kuranda
Both photos depict the the pathway of the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. It took about an hour and a half with 2 stops at the Red Park and Barron Falls Stations going in one direction.
We hear and see water down below...the great Barron Gorge and River.
The falls have more water and fuller force starting in December.
We arrive in Kuranda,
a darling small town with many wonderful sites to visit. We are limited with our time as we need to catch the railroad later in afternoon.
We get a bite to eat. I want to visit the Butterfly Sanctuary. I was fascinated by the laboratory, pupae, and silkworm caterpillar areas. There were over 2000 butterflies. They were landing on my arms and clothing.
We walked through town back to the Railroad station.
The train ride was fascinating through the same rain forest this time on land.
We exit at the Freshwater Station where we are met by our large tour buses to return us back to our hotels around 5:30.
We are told about a delicious Chinese restaurant in town. Our mouths start watering for our favorite dish. I found a Crispy Beef and Eileen enjoyed her Chicken and Broccoli. She ate all of her dish and I had "take away."
