If you’re in Cairns, Northern Beaches, or Port Douglas in Australia and looking for a nature getaway that’s worth your time, then you should know that one of the best places to visit is the village of Kuranda and the lush verdant landscape surrounding it.  Wander around the village and get acquainted with the oldest living culture in the world as well as discover a wide variety of magnificent fauna and beautiful flora. You’ll also get to ride two of the most celebrated transports in the area, the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and the Kuranda Scenic Rail. The former will take you high above ground and you’ll get a stunning panoramic view of the rainforest. On the other hand, the latter will take you into the sea of trees and you’ll be able to revel in the serene atmosphere as you listen to the ambient noise of the train, the rustling of leaves, and the chirping birds living there. This is a definitely a must-book trip for any nature lover visiting Australia.
