Kuranda Accommodation

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.
