News 2 Viewer Trip 2018 - Kuranda Scenic Train/Great Barrier Reef

AUSTRALIA (WCBD) — We spent most of our day on the Kuranda Scenic Train, where we rode in and above the tropical rainforest. The views as you might imagine are breathtaking! 

We took the train up to Kuranda for lunch and shopping, sometimes known as “retail therapy, but came back down on the Skyrail, the World’s longest Gondola Cableway. Except for a time when we were not moving, suspended in the air for about 10 minutes, it was quite the ride. 

At least we were able to take many photos of the rain forest 1000 feet below! 

We did arrive back in the city of Cairns for a night of dinner and bat watching!!! Actually, Cairns has a lot to do and see! Be careful with the Tim Tam cookies — they go down real easy!!!

Then on Saturday, April 14, we are a day ahead of you guys back home, it was another amazing adventure!

3 words for Saturday’s recap on our News2 Viewer Australian Adventure — Great Barrier Reef! 

We had the most amazing day in the Coral Sea... The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 1,400 Miles over an area of approximately 133,000 sq miles! 

Our group got a chance to view the reef from a helicopter, glass bottom boat, submersible vessel, and last, but certainly not least, going snorkeling. 

Hope you enjoy the photos and videos of our group!
