The Kuranda Visitor Information Centre was purpose built by the Mareeba Shire Council during the Main Street Programme. This was an initiate of the Kuranda Village Promotion Programme in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce with assistance from the Shire Council. The Centre took 12 months of planning involving Kuranda businesses, builders and artists and was opened on the 22nd May 2000. An enthusiastic team of volunteers has worked in the Centre since it opened and it is now the focal point for information to locals and visitors as well as the travel industry, showcasing the whole region.
