If I only have time to do one day trip - should we choose Daintree or Kuranda? We are family of 7 - 3 adults; 2 seniors (65+ years), 2 kids below 7... staying in Cairns.. and this area is our first stop from the US on our 10 day trip around Australia.
I keep reading the Daintree is great.. and Kuranda is nice also but touristy (but so what.. we are tourists.. so what's wrong with that?!)
We are staying at Cairns - and so Kuranda seems easier to get to.. shorter drive etc. But is Daintree really really better.. a 'must' visit vs. Kuranda? Help!
