Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland in northeastern Australia, is the largest living thing on Earth, and even visible from outer space. The 2,300 km-long ecosystem comprises thousands of reefs and hundreds of islands made of over 600 types of hard and soft coral. It's home to countless species of colourful fish, molluscs and starfish, plus turtles, dolphins and sharks.

Daintree Rainforest

The Daintree Rainforest is a tropical rainforest region located on the north east coast of Queensland, Australia, north of Mossman and Cairns. At around 1,200 square kilometres (460 sq mi), the Daintree is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian continent. Along the coastline north of the Daintree River, tropical rainforest grows right down to the edge of the sea.

Kuranda Scenic Railway

The Kuranda Scenic Railway is a name for the railway line that runs from Cairns, Queensland, Australia, to the nearby town of Kuranda. The tourist railway passes through the suburbs of Stratford, Freshwater (stopping at Freshwater Station), Redlynch and snakes its way up the Macalister Range before reaching Kuranda. The railway is 37 km (23 mi) in length. It takes about one hour and 55 minutes to climb one way including the stop off at the falls.
