    Kuranda Village & Rainforestation

    Army Duck

    We didn't like the village much. Too touristy and tacky for me. They've got Aborigine dance troupes and boomerang & didgeridoo shops and loads of arty markets and stuff but not my cup of tea. I think it grew out of a 60's Hippy commune but hey, it ain't the sixties no more, so time to move on. So move on we did, to a place called the Rainforestation Centre, where we went on an Army Duck Tour for some real culture :¬)
    We also learnt yet more about Epiphytes, well let's face it you can never know too much about them! We caught the bus here from outside the Butterfly Farm and it dropped us back at the Railway Station.

    One of the things to see in Kuranda is the Rainforest Station which has a good collection of crocodiles, snakes and marsupials kept in what look to be quite good conditions. In there we also went on a Duck (amphibious landing craft) drive - pretty good fun.
