Located to the North-West of downtown Cairns, the short drive to Kuranda is well worth the drive. It has come along was since the 1960's when it was chosen by some as a great place to lead an alternative lifestyle.
Today the Kuranda Village plays host to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, who are attracted by it's cultural activities and galleries, craft markets and of course to ride the Kuranda Scenic Railway or Skyrail Cableway.
The Barron Falls create a spectacular sight, year round, with millions of litres splashing over the rocks, especially in the monsoon wet seasons.
No trip to Far North Queensland is complete without a visit to the Kuranda Rain Forest.
