Highlights

  • The Kuranda Heritage Markets: aside from the huge array of local, hand-made goods for sale – from jewellery to pottery and Indigenous creations – there’s entertainment around every corner. 
  • The thriving café scene in Kuranda means there are plenty of delicious options to choose from for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon tea. Sit on the verandah at Frogs, located at the Heritage Markets, and watch the water dragons scampering in the rainforest while you refuel. 

Perfect Selfie

  • With rainforest canopy underfoot and panoramic views of the Coral Sea and tropical landscape over your shoulder, a selfie aboard a Skyrail gondola is a must. 

Share your selfie on our Facebook page and tag your best Instagram pics with #barrierreefaustralia for your chance to be featured.
