From Cairns: AJ Hackett Giant Swing Experience

5. From Cairns: AJ Hackett Giant Swing Experience

Experience the high speeds and acceleration of Australia's only multi-person swing on a giant swing adventure from Cairns. Swoop through the rain forest from a height of 45 meters to 1 meter in just 3.5 seconds. Reach speeds of up to 120km/h. Local legend tells of a saber-toothed rain forest cat that once roamed the hills of Smithfield. The Aboriginals had a name for the creature, which means “Mountain Devil.” They called it the "Minjin." Over a century ago, a local man by the name Stan McGregor was forging a trail through the dense and untouched rain forest of Saddle Mountain. The unforgiving rains of the tropics belted down and the monsoon weather soon saw the bullock driver stranded. On the brink of death, an Aboriginal tribe found him struggling for life and nurtured him back to health. Fear glistened in the eyes of the tribe as they warned the bullock driver not to continue. Determined to carry on, he disappeared into the depths of the unforgiving jungle, never to be seen again. Years later, a timber cutter found a message carved into a worn leather saddle wedged high in the branches of a tree deep in the rain forest. His boots crunched over bone and a harness entangled his feet as he made his way toward the tree. His blood ran cold and his bones shivered as he read the message, “Something is here. Something is stalking me.” He felt eyes watching him as he inched back out of the jungle. Decades passed in the misty rain forest peaks of Smithfield. Strange paw prints have been found and sightings of the shadows of a huge panther like animal have transpired. Shrill cries and ferocious howls have been heard in the distance, but no further traces of the elusive creature have been found. The legend of the "Minjin" was unearthed by AJ Hackett over 20 years ago.
