It was a unique experience when we arrived at the train station. I felt traveling back in time to the 20's. The journey itself took about 1.5 hours, but for me who enjoyed the scenery along the way the time was just flying. It was great, we also got a chance to stop for 10 minutes at Baron Falls to take photos. Kuranda Village was also interesting, they had souvenir shops, bird park and butterfly sanctuary but we chose to explore the rainforest there with an amphibian duck tour. My sons love it! We learned more about rainforest ( we also have rainforest back home) but it was kind of different doing it on the amphibian car. The cable car was recommended to get back from Kuranda Village after tiring journey in Kuranda Village as it only took 45 minutes. We may not revisit Kuranda but I would recommend to anyone who visit Cairns for the 1st time.
