Choose from units, cottages, an artist’s studio, cabins, dormitories, luxury rooms all with modern conveniences, or just sleep in a tent. Breakfast in bed, cook your own, or eat out. The choices for overnight comfort are varied, with tropical forest settings and access to water in pools and creeks adding to the experience.
After a busy day take the opportunity to relax at your accommodation and listen for Kuranda’s many night roaming creatures: wallabies, pademelons, bandicoots, flying foxes, owls and curlews and the “murdered woman”- the scrub hen. The wet season from December through to April is a time for frog music – the real sound of the tropical rainforest. All this is possible from your Kuranda accommodation hide-away.

Davies Creek National Park
Davies Creek National Park, also known as Dinden Forest Reserve, is 28km from Kuranda. The park, which is situated on Davies Creek, is a popular destination for travellers and locals. The creek is a wonderful area for nature lovers and kids, with crystal clear pools between granite boulders that create rapids and natural rockslides.
The camping area downstream from the falls is open to campers on a first-in basis. A self-registration booth near the toilets provides forms and a deposit box for fees. Cost per adult per night is $5.45; family rates do not exceed $21.80 provided the children are under 15 years of age, and children under five are free. The maximum length of stay is 22 days. There are several wood-fuelled barbecues under the trees beside the creek for day-trippers and campers – wood is provided. There are three camping areas beyond the falls; each area has two campsites and a shared toilet. They are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and must be booked in advance through their website: www.derm.qld.gov.au
