Getting to Kuranda

Getting to Kuranda

Kuranda truly is the Village in the Rainforest, situated 380m above sea-level on top of the McAlister Range, in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforests. Lush tree ferns line the roadside on the way into the village and numerous walking tracks and trails take you into the green surrounds, offering running streams, wide rivers and views over waterfalls and gorges.

Boasting spectacular scenery and natural beauty, just getting here is an experience in itself.

We look forward to seeing you at Kuranda The Village in the Rainforest.

Come and enjoy the Markets in the Rainforest

Kuranda is world famous for its markets. The Village in the Rainforest has two market locations, the Original Markets and the Heritage Markets, both of which are open every day of the year. Stalls offer a wide range of Aboriginal artefacts, handmade leather goods, wood and jewellery. Stall holders are happy to explain their craft and overseas posting is not a problem. Entertainment from wandering buskers may also be enjoyed.

Kuranda Accommodation

Kuranda Accommodation

Choose from units, cottages, an artist’s studio, cabins, dormitories, luxury rooms all with modern conveniences, or just sleep in a tent. Breakfast in bed, cook your own, or eat out. The choices for overnight comfort are varied, with tropical forest settings and access to water in pools and creeks adding to the experience.

After a busy day take the opportunity to relax at your accommodation and listen for Kuranda’s many night roaming creatures: wallabies, pademelons, bandicoots, flying foxes, owls and curlews and the “murdered woman”- the scrub hen. The wet season from December through to April is a time for frog music – the real sound of the tropical rainforest. All this is possible from your Kuranda accommodation hide-away.

 Easter in the Park

We've been enjoying a bumper cruise ship season and are looking forward to the school holidays in April which fall before Easter this year. Easter is always fun in Kuranda with Easter in the Park on Saturday April 15. We have plenty of great free family activities planned and, of course, will be bringing back our much-loved enormous Easter egg drop.

Make sure you plan a trip to Kuranda before the rain disappears so you can enjoy the roar of the Barron Falls and the green of our beautiful Wet Tropics rainforest.
