Kuranda is a colourful village and artist haven, only 25 kilometres from Cairns and elevated 380 metres above sea level amidst tropical rainforest.

Going up

  • Wind through the cascading waterfalls and deep ravines aboard the historic scenic railway or experience the World Heritage–listed Wet Tropics Rainforest aboard a rainforest cableway. 

  • Stand above the mighty Barron Falls – powering a hydro-electric station – or picnic at Lake Placid.
  • Relax around a campfire and experience Indigenous Culture and learn to throw a boomerang.

Art and beauty

  • Explore the artist galleries and shop for handmade leather goods, jewellery and souvenirs, or have your fortune told at the popular daily markets.
  • Join a guided tour of a butterfly sanctuary including the ‘engine room’ full of caterpillars or cuddle a koala at a wildlife park.
