Kuranda
The first day we were by ourselves and we explored the nearby markets and eateries. We visited the Kuranda Rainforest on our second day of stay. Its lush greenery topped with mild rain made it a beautiful place to be in. It was refreshing to be amidst pure nature. There are a lot of things to do at kuranda. They have a tiny zoo, where we fed kangaroos, a space to practice boomerang throws and a tiny amphi theatre which entertains you with Australian traditions and dances. The kuranda bird sanctuary is fantastic where one can feed all the birds around. They are pretty approachable and friendly. Tiny markets also swarm this area, and you can shop for local produce and articles.An evening walk on the waterfront is something that you don't want to miss, and a dip in the blue lagoon a must! You can spend the night at the only casino that Cairns has to offer. Just don't forget to carry your passport.The third day was my favourite. We spent the day at great barrier reef and my personal recommendation: do not miss an opportunity to scuba dive here if you can. The scenery below is breathtaking and I haven't been able to shake it off my mind even after all these years. For the not so brave hearted, you can try snorkelling. But do enter the water. The flaura and fauna of this place will take your breath away. Also, though a little expensive, if you do plan to scuba dive, do rent your own waterproof camera, which is easily available from the assembly point of the cruise.So go around! Jump in, splash some water and watch the underworld go by!

About Cow Bay

Cow Bay is a small isolated community set in a lovely rainforest environment located along the coast, just off the Cape Tribulation Road twenty minutes north of the Daintree River vehicle Ferry (costs 25 AUD for car both ways, more details on Douglas council website). The drive from the Ferry to Cow Bay involves traveling through the depths of the the ancient and simply beautiful Daintree Rainforest on the winding and narrow sealed road. Cow Bay includes its MUST visit Beach, a spectacular and vast lonely beach nestled between lush hills and definitely one of the greatest beaches I have ever visited. Cow Bay Beach is just a short drive down the sealed Buchannan Creek Road, a side road off the main Cape Tribulation Road.
