Kuranda Village and its many shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and more are all open 7 days a week. For your convenience, most Kuranda businesses accept cash and card payments. The exception to this is Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway which are currently operating on a cash-free basis: more information regarding this can be found on their websites www.skyrail.com.au/visitor-information/covidsafe and www.ksr.com.au/COVID-19. We look forward to seeing you in the rainforest, when you visit our village in the mountains.
The Original Rainforest Market is open Thursday to Monday from 9.30am to 3pm. The Original Market first started in 1978 and retains all the charm and character of its origins. Wander down beneath the trees and explore the many stalls, offering an eclectic array of goods with a strong eco-conscious ethic. Grab a refreshment, visit the free fossil and gemstone museum or just find a space to soak it all in.
The Heritage Markets are open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 3.30pm. This fully covered market is an attraction in its own right, with a delightful array of stalls selling a diverse range of goods. From leather belts and jewellery, to local arts and craft and even the world’s hottest chilies, you can find it all at Kuranda’s Heritage Markets. It’s also home to the Kuranda Koala Gardens, Birdworld Kuranda and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, which provide the opportunity to engage and interact with some of our favourite critters including koalas and kangaroos, bright and beautiful butterflies, parrots and lorikeets – there’s even a Southern Cassowary. If you get hungry Frogs Restaurant is right inside or grab an ice-cream and wander.
