Visitor Information Kuranda's General Services

For a village with a population of around 3000 people, Kuranda offers all manner of services to both its residents and visitors.
For tourists there are ATMs, foreign exchange facilities, a post office, supermarket, chemist, newsagents and a mechanic for that car that needs a bit of pampering. We’re also an accessible destination, with a disabled toilet situated in the main public convenience complex. To assist our visitors, we do have a push chair (age 6 months and over) and wheelchair available for hire for a small fee. For easy reference, we’re pleased to provide listings for some general services you may require on this page. For more information, please contact us or drop into the Visitor Information Centre.
