Fashion in Kuranda

Created by tk_staff under Easter in the Park 2018 on Monday 5th of September 2016

Spring is in the air, and that means it’s the perfect opportunity for a wardrobe update! It’s time to do some spring cleaning and invest in some new clothing pieces for the coming season. Out with the old, and in with the new!

Not only that, but the Cairns Amateur Racing Carnival is right around the corner. The Cairns Amateur Ladies Day is on September 9, and the Cup Day is September 10.

Kuranda has a variety of different fashion boutiques, from clothing to jewellery. These shops are located all throughout the village, and sell an eclectic range of new and second-hand clothes. You can find high end fashion as well as unique accessories for every outfit.

Whether you are looking for that special outfit for the races, or another big occasion, Just Gorgeous is one of the first places to look. Owner Jill Melody says that they now specialise in occasion outfits as well as everyday wear.

Jill also says that the lovely feminine vintage look is currently trending.

“We have a great selection of lace, as well as 50s style cotton dresses with hats, bags, shoes and even sunglasses to complete the outfit. Our aim is to make every woman feel and look like a winner!”

For those who are seeking a hat for the races, Just Gorgeous has a range of both hats and fascinators.

Just Gorgeous started out as a small recycled consignment store called New To You. This year marks 25 years in business. Jill says that tourists have often found their “mother of the bride or groom dresses where they least expected to find it – in our little village in the rainforest!”

If you are looking for a more bohemian style for the races, then Tonketti is the place to go. The boutique opened in June this year and has been getting a great response from locals and international tourists. The store also stocks beautiful leather bags, wallets, feather chokers, shell items and bohemian style homewares.

Tonketti offers a range of bohemian style clothing from casual crochet to beautiful maxi dresses. Owner Liz Tonkin says that “We appeal to those people who have a bohemian heart and love comfortable and affordable style”. She says that Tonketti has some lovely dresses, pantsuits and accessories that would be great for the upcoming races.

“Bohemian style is definitely on trend, judging by the response I’m getting from International visitors. The Wanderlust style is where it is at!” Liz says.





Tantrika is another popular boutique in Kuranda, selling clothes for men, women and children of all ages and sizes. They stock alternative fashions that are ecofriendly and are perfect for wearing in the tropics.

Candice from Tantrika says that “We are into looking great and feeling 100% comfortable”. The store stocks a huge range of Bamboo, Organic Cotton and Hemp, as well as a range of recycled rubber jewellery and thongs.

Tantrika has been running in Kuranda for nine and a half years, and they have recently opened a second store in Cairns. This is handy for those who run out of time whilst visiting Kuranda on a day tour and are heading back to Cairns. Tantrika also stocks their own self-designed kids label called Tantrika Tots.
