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.

The Easter Bunny will be dropping 14,000 chocolate Easter eggs on Kuranda at the village's annual Easter in the Park celebration on Saturday, April 15. Easter in the Park attracts locals and visitors for free family fun in the Village in the Rainforest.

The Easter Bunny will drop eggs each hour from 11am to 2pm in Centenary Park and there will be a separate area for the littlies aged five years and under to meet the Easter Bunny for a photo and to collect their own little bag of Easter eggs.

Included in the free family fun will be three jumping castles with one set aside for the younger kids, kids' games, street performers, a magic show, four face painters, horse and carriage rides, shows and stalls including Kuranda Envirocare and Kuranda Conservation.
