On Friday we took a tour to Kuranda, after being picked up at the motel at 8.30, we took the train journey up to Kuranda. This was a lovely trip through the rain forest, magnificent views, and a running commentary of the history of the area and the railway. Read here
Our return trip was on the Skyrail, and again, the views were spectacular.
Once back in Cairns, we met up with the last of our traveling companions , and headed off to the esplanade where we found a nice Turkish restaurant. Kaye and David had not eaten Turkish food before, but bravely agreed to try it, much to their delight.
Saturday saw us hitting the craft market just outside our hotel, the vendors are almost all artists selling their own artworks. There were some lovely things, but we did not buy a lot. Downtown for smoko, and then lunch on the wharf, watching people come on and off the boats. A leisurely afternoon, TRO watched the AFL grand final and I went for a walk, and then hit the books for a while.
A delicious Italian dinner added to our international repertoire of food over the last two weeks, and then another walk for some night photography.
