Head to the outside deck and take in the views of Cairns and its surrounding mangroves as the sun begins to set. See the city's lights twinkle as night falls and you cruise past the waterfront and Esplanade area. Enjoy onboard entertainment and indulge in a delicious buffet dinner, including fresh seafood.

Today will be spent exploring Kuranda, a mountain village near Cairns tucked away in dense tropical rainforest. You'll journey aboard the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway, winding along forested hillside tracks carved out by early settlers. Once in Kuranda, the choice is yours when it comes to the activities on offer. Perhaps visit one of Kuranda's two outdoor markets, where you'll find locally made clothing and jewellery, Indigenous art, wood carvings and ceramics, as well as tasty local produce. Or if you'd like to see some wildlife, head to one of the wildlife sanctuaries and get up close to koalas, butterflies and birds. Alternatively, set out on a guided walk or enjoy a relaxing boat trip on the Barron River (own expense). As your time in Kuranda comes to an end, board the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for the journey back down to Cairns. The Skyrail soars above the rainforest canopy and offers spectacular views out to the ocean. Return to your hotel for dinner this evening.
