    "We have booked the train / light rail tour for the day. Unfortunately the weather was frightening and it rained all day. We arrived at the Skyrail center in Smithfield and the bus transfer to the freshwater station was good. After the train trip we had a walk around Kuranda and had lunch at a local cafe. We booked tickets late in the afternoon to return via Skyrail. Luckily they let us return early. Staff were pleasant. The commentary you can download to your phone was great. Unfortunately the weather was so bad that we could only see a few meters ahead. Still, the trip on the hedge was enjoyable. At the two stops down they were equipped with umbrellas and the trail was good, but the visibility was too bad. If the weather was clear, do it again, it would be great."
    Reasons to Recommend: Skyrail is a must-do "World Heritage" rainforest sightseeing experience in Cairns. The virgin rainforest growing in the World Natural Heritage Reserve through which the Skyrail passes is one of the oldest tropical rainforests in the world, with a history of at least 150 million years, tens of millions of years earlier than the Amazon rainforest. The 7.5-kilometer Skyrail tour explores the ancient tropical rainforest. You can not only witness the inspiration prototype of the Pandora rainforest planet in the movie "Avatar", but also go deep into the unexplored natural hinterland to find the traces of Jurassic descendants living in the ancient rainforest.

    "Paronila Park is a very good virgin forest park in Cairns, where there are many ancient buildings and tall trees, especially the banyan tree and other buildings perfectly blended together, it looks very simple and elegant, full of mystery The air here is also very fresh. It is definitely a place worth visiting in Cairns."
    Reasons to Recommend: Paronella Park, a Spanish castle park built in the 1930s, is the source of inspiration for the legendary Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki's "City in the Sky". The park is surrounded by lush green rainforest, giving people a feeling of being in a fairy tale world. There are also majestic waterfalls, straight and spectacular forest avenues. The wonderland-like scenery makes the park one of the top three wedding venues in Australia. Behind the building is a Spanish dream story. Spanish Jose In order to realize the dream of building a castle when he was a child, Paronilla came to Australia from Spain to work and live alone. With his lifelong efforts, he created a Spanish castle garden integrated with nature from a wasteland. In addition, Jose was also the first person to introduce hydroelectric technology in Queensland, and today, hydroelectric generators can also provide electricity for the entire park. In the 1970s, under various difficulties, the park was abandoned for nearly 15 years, and Jose's dream was gradually forgotten. The park finally reopened in 1993, and Jose's dream continued once again... The park is located 120 kilometers south of Cairns, and the journey takes about 1.5 hours. The Chinese-language guide in the park will lead visitors into his dream manor, allowing visitors to regain that forgotten dream.

Parrots arrive with storms in November, and their gruff calls can be heard in the early morning noise. 2. Outside the rainforest In addition to the rainforest, Daintree also has pure beaches and shallow, warm tropical waters. These are mainly around Cape Tribulation to the north, where the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef meet. This is one place in the world where two World Heritage areas meet. In Daintree, nature has kept its pattern for millions of years. In spring, Vientiane is renewed and so vibrant every year.
