    We then continue our journey, visiting Lake Morris & Copperlode Dam – this is Cairns’ water supply and surrounded by World Heritage rainforest-clad mountains, it’s a unique and outstanding location to visit.

    Our next stop is Kuranda; where we will enjoy a short driving tour of the village before continuing to the World Heritage Listed Barron Gorge National Park for more spectacular photo opportunities of the Mighty Barron Falls and the stunning Wrights lookout.
  • Finally, as our tour concludes, we will head back towards Cairns via the Wet Tropics World Heritage drive on the Kuranda range.
