Location

Kuranda, Queensland, Australia

Set among the world’s oldest living tropical rainforest, the village of Kuranda is known for its vibrant arts and crafts scene. The village is a much-loved day trip from Cairns, famed for the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway. Ride the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway soaring high above the canopy and get up close to a koala at Kuranda Koala Gardens. Shop at Kuranda Original Rainforest Market and Heritage Markets for hand-crafted jewellery, Aboriginal art and tropical fruits. Enjoy a classic pub meal at the Kuranda Hotel, try local Australian ingredients at Frogs Restaurant and get your coffee fix at Kuranda Rainforest Coffee. Kuranda is a 30-minute drive to the Cairns city centre and beautiful Palm Cove, and one hours’ drive to Port Douglas.
