Cairns & Great Barrier Reef

May 2013. Trip to Cairns which started off with white water rafting in Barron River, then day trip to Kuranda via Skyrail gondola (return journey was by Kuranda Scenic Railway - tourist only train across Macalister Range). Followed by a day of wonder at the Barrier Reef. Last but not least, the Daintree rainforest and Cape Tribulation were on my itinerary prior to heading home.
