With a free day in Cairns, we decided to take the Northlands Shuttle ($6.50 pp each way from Cairns centre) up to Kuranda. We walked from the town centre to the Barron Falls boardwalk (about 2.5 km). It was a good way to spend the late morning/ early afternoon. The view of the falls from the boardwalk look outs provided for good photo opportunities.
We didn't hang around Kuranda too long upon our return as we really aren't into tourist shopping and the like.
All and all it was an enjoyable and relatively inexpensive way to spend most of a day.
Tip: Pack a lunch and enjoy the view.
