Right now is the very best time to see the mighty Barron Falls in full flood...

Ex-cyclone Olga has unleashed heavy rain across the region, with much of this now streaming down the falls.  Best vantage points are on Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Kuranda Scenic Railway, boasting fantastic lookouts over the Barron Gorge and Falls.

Kuranda Scenic Railway passes by several other waterfalls in the Barron Gorge National Park, including the famous Stoney Creek Falls on its journey between Cairns and Kuranda, providing many great photo opportunities.

For Skyrail guests, complimentary umbrellas are provided at both mid-stations, allowing them to stroll the forest floor and enjoy the views with comfort.

Other than the waterfalls, a visit to the rainforests in the rain is an amazing experience.  Clouds cloak the mountains with moisture-laden mist, the canopy and trees are a rich, verdant green and the frogs and cicadas are singing.

Don't miss this wet weather spectacle, travel on Kuranda's original & best day tour experience today.  Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, bringing you the ultimate wet weather experience!

Skybury's Australian Coffee Centre at Mareeba has an impressively large, cast iron drum roaster now roasting the daily grind of Skybury coffee in the foyer, sending the aroma of freshly toasted coffee beans into the surrounding fields.

"We're roasting at 9am each day and it’s a terrific process to watch. It takes about 15 minutes to complete the cycle, and it's tantalising - you really want that cup of coffee when you smell the roasting beans!," said Skybury owner Ian MacLaughlin.

Skybury's new roaster has a capacity of 15kg per roast and is equipped with a loader and separate green bean hopper to enable continuous roasting so it’s capable of processing up to 90kg per hour. The roaster has probes which monitor the temperature of the coffee roasting drum and the coffee beans. These measurements are used by internal computers to modulate the gas supply and temperature according to the pre-set roast specifics.

The mountains, fluorescent plant life and fantastic creatures make the supernatural setting of Hollywood blockbuster Avatar about as alternative as alternative realities get.

But the Far North can claim part of the credit for some of the spectacular landscape shots in the smash-hit 3D flick.

A trip on the Kuranda Skyrail inspired many of the movie's spectacular jungle scenes, one of the designers revealed. Avatar artist Dylan Cole made the revelation in an interview with San Francisco-based science fiction website io9.

"For a lot of the jungle overviews, I used photos that I had taken from the Kuranda Skyrail near Cairns, Australia," Mr Cole told the website.

Julie Johnston, Skyrail's communications manager, said some interesting parallels could also be seen in the film's conservation messages.

"The thing that strikes you most when you go to see Avatar are these pristine rainforests that look amazing, and the fact the residents were so passionate about protecting them because it's so intristic to their lives," Ms Johnston said.

"In that sense I think you can see that similarities are pretty striking with the World Heritage rainforestat of Cairns."

The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway offers a 7.5km trip in a gondola cabin above the rainforest canopy.
