The Kuranda Visitor Information Centre is your first stop on the way to the Atherton Tablelands/Cairns Highlands and the Savannah Way.
With a wealth of local and regional knowledge, our volunteers will be able to advise and help you plan your time in the village and assist in booking tours in the region. Most of our volunteers have lived in the village for many years and can provide you with comprehensive and accurate information on all tours, attractions and services. There is an extensive brochure display that also includes maps and regional brochures.
As well as maps and brochures, discover the Wet Tropics and the rich culture of the Djabugay people – we are currently the keeping place for local Indigenous artefacts being held on behalf of the Djabugay people. Our retail space showcases local artists’ work and books on the region. We also offer a range of gifts that are hand made locally.
To assist our visitors, we do have a pushchair (age 6 months and over) and wheelchair available for hire for a small fee.
Some of our volunteers also have a second language and can assist visitors from many countries with travel enquiries and bookings.
Locals also use the Centre as a source of information for local events and also newcomers to the area can source any community service through the centre. Maps and information on walking tracks are available for purchase.
