G'day and Happy Easter to all of you. I believe it is Easter Sunday at home. We are at the airport headed to Ayers Rcok for a few days.
Yesterday was quite a busy day for us. We took the Kuranda Scenic Railway up to the Kuranda Rainforest. The train went through 15 tunnels and over 38 bridges. Quite spectacular scenery. At the top we saw Aboriginal Dancers, tried throwing boomerangs, visited the wildlife area where we saw koalas, crocodiles, kangaroos and cassawarie birds. We were so close to all of them. We also saw dingoes but no baby. Haha. It was quite an area to visit. Then, perhaps the highlight was the trip down on the Skyrail. The highest tower was 173 feet and it took us over the rainforest canopy. The highest peak was over 1700 feet. It was magnificent!
We continue to meet such nice people. We met a family from Chicago, a couple on their honeymoon who were from DC and a rep. for Australian Tourism who was from Singapore. Today on the bus we met a couple from the UK. Such lovely people.
Now it is off to the desert. Wonder what that will be like?
