Kuranda - village in the Rainforest
Baron Falls Baron Falls (wet season) - view from Baron Falls railway Station look out. Approximately 2.5 km walk from the Village.

surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest. Visitors can drive up the range on Kennedy Hwy from Cairns (about 25Kms) or use one of the many tourist driven modes of transport such as Kurandaís Historic Scenic Railway, or over the rainforest on Skyrail Rainforest Cableway as well as various coach/bus services.

Kuranda's origin was a centre for those choosing an alternative lifestyle in the late 60ís and included a diverse group of artisans selling their wares in the local markets. Historic Buildings from the villages past now house a variety of upmarket 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.

Kurandaís 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 1920's, a gorgeous resort or a backpackers hostel, you'll find it in Kuranda.

Take the time to visit some of Kurandaís many first class nature based tourist attractions, which include koalas, butterflies, native and exotic birds, kangaroos and reptiles. Donít miss the famous Barron Falls, which are breathtaking in the wet season (Dec - April).
