The picturesque mountain retreat of Kuranda Village is surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest.
Less than an hour’s travel from Port Douglas is Kuranda’s Historic Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway taking you on an incredible scenic journey via the famous Barron Falls to the market villiage on top of the Kuranda Range.
Historic Buildings from the villages past now house a variety of upmarket restaurants, cafes and bars in this laid back village. Kuranda’s shops and markets with their handcrafted goods, Aboriginal artifacts, restaurants and coffee shops make Kuranda a well known day destination.
You may also wish to visit some of Kuranda’s nature based tourist attractions, which include koalas, butterflies, native and exotic birds, kangaroos and reptiles. You can also see traditional Aboriginal dancers perform, travel on a riverboat on the mighty Barron River or join an Army Duck ride through the rainforest.
Day tours depart Port Douglas picking you up from A Tropical Nite and we are happy to advise on the various options and tour operators available to give you a unique and exhilarating Kuranda Experience.
