Kuranda truly is the Village in the Rainforest, situated 380m above sea level on top of the McAlister Range, in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforests. Lush tree ferns line the roadside on the way into the village and numerous walking tracks and trails take you into the green surrounds, offering running streams, wide rivers and views over waterfalls and gorges. Boasting spectacular scenery and natural beauty, just getting here is an experience in itself.
Kuranda is very accessible. If you have your own transport, take a leisurely drive up the Kuranda Range. The road criss-crosses through rainforest and has a look-out spot, which provides panoramic views over the Barron River delta, across Cairns beaches and on a good day, you can see out to Green Island. To get the best rainforest experience, choose to combine Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Kuranda Scenic Railway. Both award winning attractions provide complementary yet very different journeys through the Barron Gorge National Park.
There’s also a range of day tours and public transport options. However you choose to arrive, we trust you’ll enjoy your travels and we look forward to seeing you at Kuranda The Village in the Rainforest.
