Kuranda is a mountain village near Cairns, in Queensland, on Australia's northeast coast. It's known for the Kuranda Scenic Railway, which winds along forested hillside tracks carved out by early settlers. The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway offers ocean-view gondola rides above a tropical rainforest. In the rugged Barron Gorge National Park, the imposing Barron Falls tumble over craggy rocks into the Barron River. - ( excerpt from internet )
