Kuranda and the Scenic Railway

A long time ago I met a boy 
who talked of a little train he went on as a kid.

Today he took me on that train.

We went up hills and through tunnels and passed waterfalls until we got to the town of Kuranda.

And when we got there we were met by my Internet friend Glenda and whisked off for lunch and a tour of her sewing space!

Thanks Glenda! - it was a beautiful day despite the rain!! 


  1. How wonderful that you met Glenda! Lucky you!

  2. Love that train trip! And what fun to meet Glenda as well!

  3. Dear Wendy I agree it was lovely to meet up after years chatting on the internet. Just sorry it was sooo wet for you all. Thank you for giving up soooo much of your holiday time to me. Hugs Glenda

    I was just reading your comments on the Janome 6500 Challenges group and took note of where you were traveling .....although I live in Canada, I have been on the train to Kuranda...what a fun ride with my sister who is married to an Aussie. this was in 2002, and they live in South Johnstone. We really enjoyed our visit to that area of Queensland, and seen some of the same waterfalls. My sister has been visiting from Australia, and just left my place this a.m., going to Calgary with another sister, and flying back to Australia on July 31st. Hope you have a great holiday.
