The picturesque mountain retreat of Kuranda Village is just 25 kilometres northwest of Cairns in Far North Queensland, Australia. It is a vibrant little town surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest. Travelling to Kuranda is a highlight in itself. Visitors can travel to Kuranda on Kuranda's Historic Scenic Railway, by car or bus, via the spectacular Kuranda Road, or above the rainforest canopy on Skyrail - the world's longest rainforest Cableway.
Kuranda has come a long way from its initial origins as a centre for those choosing an alternative lifestyle in the late 1960s. Historic buildings from the villages past now house a variety of up market restaurants, cafes and bars. It is still laid back, but with a style and sophistication that sets it apart from other Cairns Highlands Venues and Attractions.
Kuranda's shops and markets with their exotically handcrafted goods, Aboriginal artifacts, restaurants and coffee shops make Kuranda a well known day destination, but to truly enjoy the ambience this village has to offer you really have to stay a few nights. Whether you are looking for a cosy bed and breakfast, a well maintained multi-choice accommodation and camping park, a hotel that when you step inside you feel like you are back in the 1920s, a gorgeous resort or a backpacker�s hostel, you'll find it in Kuranda.
Take the time to visit some of Kuranda's many first class nature based tourist attractions, which include koalas, butterflies, native and exotic birds, kangaroos and reptiles. There are wonderful walking tracks which meander through magnificent rainforest and which are breathtaking when in flood. You can also see traditional Aboriginal dancers perform, travel on a riverboat on the mighty Barron River on join an Army Duck ride through the rainforest.
