Bring a lot of spending as this place will stretch your wallet. Beautiful artifacts and some nice souvenirs you can take back home. The only concern is if this look indigenous made items are really done by them.

Visited this during our visit to Kuranda. Nice local market to shop a few delicacies and also local items. The coffee shop in there is vegan and we loved the sugarcane juice it was selling.

When you get off the Skyrail and you round the corkscrew bend up to the elevated township you’ll end up in a little village, which for its tiny size is full of personality. The main street is market time fun. The delightful thing about Kuranda...More

Markets, markets, markets...I love them! We drove up especially to see the markets but were very disappointed. It was just a tourist con. No atmosphere, overpriced, grubby, vacant stalls. Don't waste your time.

...but the stuff they're selling you can get at any market anywhere in QLD. Wandering the maze of shops was fun though. In hindsight, I would go to Kuranda for something else (eg the Butterflies, birds, etc, and make the markets a 'visit because you're...More

I enjoyed the trip here via Skyrail. However getting here I felt I was being sold stuff/souvenirs left,right and centre. No one peddling anything but took away from the charm of everything that otherwise could have demonstrated Kuranda,it's aboriginal heritage and history. Instead the 'village'...More

I've never been anywhere quite like it before. Art work, food stalls, a mini golf course, a piano...all in the middle of a natural rainforest. Incredible. It's a lovely atmosphere and a great way to support the local community. I've been back many times and...More
