At this time, as a result of COVID-19 the Original Markets is operating 5 days a week, Thursday to Monday 9.30am – 3pm.
These markets had their humble beginnings in 1978, organized by a group of local hippy artists and crafts people. These markets put Kuranda on the map, cementing its reputation as an exotic rainforest destination for local and international visitors. Today the Original Markets has retained its atmosphere, with many local artists and personalities making the market part of their lifestyle. Many of the current marketeers have been involved in the markets during the last 25 – 30 years. Their local knowledge and expertise is second to none.
