Walking is one way to see the rainforest. Thatâ€™s my way. But not everyone
has the time and walking in the rain does not appeal to a lot of us . So you
might think of other ways. One is to take a trip to Mount Tamborine
Mountain, just south of Brisbane, and go out onto the walkway there (top
picture). Another is to go to Cairns and take a trip on the sky train (bottom
picture). I give these as examples. Lots of places ha ve similar attractions.
Alternatively, you might hire a car and drive into the rainforest. That would
be my choice. Thereâ€™s no shortage of roads. The National Parks Services of
Queensland and New South Wales provide detailed information on the
internet â€¦ or consult Google maps.
Tropical rainforest begins near Coffs Harbour, in northern New South Wales,
and patches dot the coastal mountains all the way to Cape York Peninsular.
You can visit rainforest from Coffs Harbour, Gold Coast, Mackay, Airlie
Beach, Hinchinbrook, Cairns and Daintree, to name just a few places. For
