... next stop so we all head back to our original seats. The train is packed to the rafters with approximately 700 passengers. It takes about 2 hours for the journey to Kuranda up the old line which was built in 1891 with most of the scenery on the right hand side. Unfortunately we did not get a window seat so we really don't see much, I think I would recommend people taking the gold option for the extra $110 per couple as you would probably ...

We woke up nice and early to make our way to the port for our reef trip, couldn't ask for better weather. Before we hopped on we took a couple of sea sickness pills, as we were advised if choppy it could end up ruining your day. Maybe a bit of a school boy error as we didn't ...
