Before I head north to Cape York (see previous email) the family (Cate + 3 kids 
- 4, 7 and 9) are spending a week in Cairns. We have a couple places booked to 
the north of Cairns, and a couple of nights at Atherton (because it is nioce 
there). I am looking at doing some family friendly activities (that might drag 
a few birds in as well).
The three things I would like comment are:
Reef trip - I would like to get to Michaelmas, but is that realistic with a 
family? If so any recommendations for good operators? If not is the 
birding/reef on Green Island worth the day (we went to Low Isles many years ago 
and is that a better option now)?I am thinking about Daintree River Cruise - 
but don't really want to do the 4AM start to do the birdwatching one. Any 
recommendations for a trip that gives good wildlife sightings (including crocs 
and good birds) and is family friendly (in both time and price)?Is the Kuranda 
Skyrail (and then return by train which I have never done) worth a day trip? We 
will probably end up in Kuranda at some stage, and the day being a true tourist 
is tempting. Any reviews either way?Does anyone else have some family friendly 
suggestions - we will visit some of the parks around Atherton, and might head 
up to Mossman Gorge as well, but any suggestions appreciated.
