Kuranda Village Walks

Although visitors arriving in Kuranda from the coast will have traversed the lush rainforested slopes of the Kuranda range, many are unaware that the forest is actually a central feature of the village and that a network of paths and boardwalks wind through this scenic landscape. No matter whether you arrived by road, train or Skyrail all the natural wonders of the area are easily accessed on foot from the centre of town. Walkers on a tight schedule can choose a variety of circuit track options within the village.

Jum Rum Creek – Jungle Walk – River Walk

  • Rating: Easy
  • Time: 1hr Circuit
  • Type: Rainforest and Riverside Walk
  • Length: 3km
  • Access: Starts at Kuranda Village Information Centre

From the Visitor Information Centre three linked paths form an easy circuit walk through the rainforest in Kuranda Village. The Jum Rum Creek walk follows a short paved path past the fire station on Coondoo Street to the Jum Rum Creek Conservation Park where it winds through rainforest, crosses Jum Rum Creek, and then climbs to Barron Falls Road. At this point it connects to the Jungle Walk, which continues through rainforest to the River Walk beside the Barron River. The River Walk follows the riverbank to the railway station where a staircase links the walk to Coondoo Street, 500 metres from the Visitor Information Centre.

Rainforest Canopy Walk & Barron Falls Lookout

  • Rating: Easy – Wheelchair Enabled
  • Time: 40 Minutes Return
  • Type: Raised Boardwalk and Path
  • Access By Road: 3.3km
  • Distance: 1km Return

This spectacular boardwalk connects Barron Falls Road with Barron Falls Lookout via the Barron Falls Railway Station. Suspended high above the forest floor, the boardwalk weaves through the lush rainforest canopy before descending to the Falls Lookout. There are so many vantage points along the platform that a return walk can take longer to complete than the distance suggests.
