Ride through the magnificent rainforest aboard the historic Kuranda Railway. Unwind your way through rugged mountains and waterfalls tumbling into deep ravines. Or immerse yourself in tradition at the Tjapuki Aboriginal Culture Park, and maybe take home a boomerang. Take a waterfront walk along the Esplanade Boardwalk with beautiful views of the mountains and sea, have a snack at one of the many eateries, or people-watch while the little ones play in one of the playgrounds or small water parks.
