But alas, we had to leave the Daintree and spend our last night in Cairns. We stayed at a super backpackery hostel (read: I had the sneaking suspicion that everything was covered in 18-year-old semen or alcohol. Or both), and the next morning Dan convinced me to go visit the nearby mountain town of Kuranda. I'm glad he was insistent, because it was lovely, and we got to see some beautiful birds and butterflies, and also to add to our Train List.
|Tropical birds at Birdworld!|
|The Hercules Moth caterpillar is FREAKING ENORMOUS.|
|Lastly, we added to our list of trains we've been on together by taking the train from Kuranda down the mountain to Cairns.|
|Apparently this used to be an incredibly important supply and transport train during WWII, but now of course it runs through ghost towns.|
|This is the fourth train we've taken together. We really like silly trains.|
And that's it for our trip to Queensland! Yay!
