This is the Kruanda Scenic Rail tour (February 7, 2012) going from Freshwater, Australia Station to Kuranda, Australia. I am posting a part of that trip here. Kuranda is about 10-15 Miles from Cairns, Australia.
On our trip from Cairns to Port Douglas, I took this picture of the beautiful beach near Port Douglas, Australia. Port Douglas is about an hour from Cairns, Australia. Tommorrow, we head on a 5 day 4 night cruise on the Great Barrier Reef on the Coral Princess - a cruise ship holding a maximum of 50 passengers.
No people on the beach. Beaches run continuously on the Coral Sea..Right now it is somewhat dangerous to swim in the Ocean due to many dangerous jelly fish at this time of year. They actually rope off sections with nets where one can swim. It's hard to do justice to the beaches of Australia with one or two pictures!!!
