Waterfalls in Kuranda
Barron Falls
It is worth your while to get off from the Kuranda Scenic Railway or Skyrail http://www.Minube.Com/rincon/kuranda-scenic-railway-a3474 http://www.Minube.Com/rincon/skyrail-rainforest-cableway-a91695 at the Barron Falls stop to contemplate these impressive waterfalls that seem to come from nowhere in the middle of Australian Rainforest. The stop that the train makes will only last ten minutes so you have enough time to peek at the view, photographing waterfalls and return to the train. However, it is advisable to stay and wander the marked trails to get amazing views. The waterfall is close to 260 meters and you will be able to see the varied flora and fauna of the forest. if you leave the marked trail, do not lose sight of it as it is very easy to get lost in the thick vegetation. You can hop on the next train, do not worry your ticket will have the same validity.
Zoos in Kuranda
Kuranda Koala Gardens
This is a unique opportunity to watch some of the world's wildlife in Australia. It's a small park that's very well conditioned, where animals live in their natural habitat and appear to be oblivious to the visitor's prying eyes. There are wallabies, kangaroos, wombats, crocodiles, iguanas, snakes and reptiles in this curious mini rain forest zoo. You will have a chance to see them up close, photograph them, see them fight, eat, hide, or just sleep. Koalas are the stars of this garden, giving it its name. They eat and sleep, eat and sleep, to save energy. These authentic live teddy bears are adorable, and just make you want to hug them and take them home, which, of course, is not possible, but you can always take a picture with one and put it on your bedside table forever.

Australian Butterfly Sanctuary
The world's largest butterfly. immersing yourself into a butterfly sanctuary is like being in another world, a closed space from Australian Rainforest, where 1000s of huge butterflies flap around, land on your hands or on your head and make you feel as if you were in the garden of Eden. You can see the entire life cycle of butterflies, from when they are just larvae to metamorphosis and learn about their habits, food and reproduction. A wonderful place that you can enjoy for a few hours in a single place on the planet. The best way to reach is to Kuranda Kuranda Scenic Railway and a walk for about 10 minutes until you get to the butterfly sanctuary.
