As part of the Barron River documentary project, we visited Kuranda to travel on the Kuranda River Boat last weekend. This was an extremely informative 45 minute cruise from the Kuranda township, near the railway station down river to the weir at the top of the Barron falls. Our guide, Brian gave an interesting and very informative commentary about the river’s history and ecology. He went out of his way to look after us and we were even lucky enough to spot a few freshwater crocodiles. These normally shy animals have grown used to the regular passing of the river boat and don’t take a lot of notice. Thank you Brian, for helping make our day a productive one.
