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 ATM’s, 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. There is a courtesy shuttle bus from the Skyrail/Railway stations to carry visitors to the markets. This runs every 15 minutes until 2.50pm. 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.
