Continuing on in my Australia series, today let’s take a look at Kuranda. Kuranda, a remote Australian mountaintop village in Queensland, is one of those anomalies that you really won’t know whether to love or hate. Or perhaps like us you can settle for cheerful ambivalence. Before we visited I read plenty of reviews about how Kuranda is a tourist trap and that a visit there could really dent your pockets. Now that I’ve been there myself, I can confirm that every word of this is true. But in spite of all its perceived flaws, Kuranda has a charm that is hard to deny.
As I mentioned in a previous post, after a rough start we finally made it to Australia. If you have not read about it yet, I urge you to take a peek at that post. I’d like to think the one positive thing about that experience is that I can use this platform to spread awareness about the issue. So please, make my day and go read that post by clicking here.
So now that I am done with my PSA of the day, let’s get on to more fun things and talk about what we did once we landed on the Island Continent.
