Kuranda, the Village in the Rainforest, has a range of walking tracks suited to every age and fitness level. Whether it’s an interpretive walk through the village, a rainforest stroll through the undergrowth, or wandering along the banks of the Barron River, there’s something for everyone.
The many walking tracks and trails around Kuranda provide the perfect opportunity to explore the ancient rainforest, in the relative comfort of our cooler Tablelands climate. The majority of the tracks wander amongst dense rainforest and its closed canopy provides plenty of shade. However some of the trails, including Davies Creek and the Barron River Walk, have limited or intermittent shade. If you plan on enjoying any of Kuranda’s walking tracks and trails, we strongly recommend the application of sunscreen and insect repellent and taking water with you. For more information on any of the walks, you can pick up a copy of the self-guided Kuranda Nature Track brochure at the Kuranda Visitor Information Centre, or download it here.
Please note many of our world class attractions also offer the opportunity to get closer to nature on boardwalks and rainforest pathways, as well as lookouts over the Barron Falls.
