Cairns Trip - Day 3
The weather was pretty much the same everyday during my stay in Cairns, cloudy and light shower in the morning and a bit muggy during the day but all of those unfriendly weather didn't make my holiday less enjoyable.
My third day was visiting Kuranda Village, got the coach transfer around 8 o'clock in the morning from my hotel to Freshwater station where we boarded the scenic railway for 75 minutes ride to The village of Kuranda. Located on the mountain 25 km northwest of Cairns, the village is surrounded by world heritage's rainforest which you can enjoy either by scenic railway or skyrail cableway. The village offers a wide range of attraction such as Koala world, bird world, indigenous culture, art galleries, shops, markets and the rainforest itself which known as one of the oldest on this planet. Riding the skyrail cableway on the way down to smithfield station was the best part of the day, forty-five minutes ride passing through the natural beauty of rainforest, stopping at two stations in between and had a short walk in the forest was really a relaxing trip.
Browsing the souvenir shop and found some unique keyring made with real outback animal which known as some of the most poisonous animal in the world such as the famous Red back spider.
