There is a village up in the rain forest called Kuranda. You can get there by bus, but savvy people know that the best way to go is either the train, or the “Sky Rail.”

Thankfully, I went with my friend Melissa, and she knew all the best things to do. I am so grateful for her!

So, we took the Sky Rail there, and it offered places to get off and walk in the rain forest, as well as amazing views from within the cable cars.

When we got there, we went to a wildlife park with koala bears and kangaroos, which was cool.


Then, we went to a butterfly garden, which was even better. (I love butterflies!)

And, I tried a kangaroo steak, which was way better than a kangaroo burger.

Finally, we took the train back to Cairns.

The train ride was amazing, and we even stopped to see the waterfall!

It was a really good day, and I loved the rain forest.
