The mountainous lands beyond Cairns possess all manner of treasures, from rainforest villages and market towns like Kuranda, wineries (including locally-made Mango Wine) and coffee plantations. Coach and self-drive options abound, or embark on the ride of a lifetime on Cairns’ famous SkyRail and romantic Kuranda Scenic Railway. Discover the beautiful waterfall circuit throughout the misty-mountain trail, and indulge in water sports and recreational fun at Lake Eacham and Lake Barine. On your way back to the city, you might like to stop and sample locally produced cheeses, and pause for pictures of Aussie wildlife. South of the area you will also stumble upon serene tropical towns like Mission Beach. Take as little or as long as you like exploring these parts − they are as picturesque as they are interesting.
