    Exotic birdlife right and your fingertips. Birds were flying uninhibited and interacting with tourists/visitors. Awesome!

    You do get to see a little of the rainforest on the "duck", mostly the flora. The shows and demonstrations are little on the touristy side, but entertaining nonetheless.

    A great waterfall, can be viewed from the railway which gives a decent view. The flow is very dependent on recent weather of course.

    Well laid out park with a variety of local wildlife, a chance to get up close to different varieties of kangaroos, some birds and a few others, booking koala visit. Nice cafe too.

    Second visit for us from South Australia and the reason we chose to stay in Kuranda for last couple of nights of our QLD trip.
    Always a pleasure to hear from Pam and see some of the rescues. Iain also was able to give some interesting facts and give us an unforgettable experience with the bats. They are not currently routinely open and rely on donations so it was lucky and a pleasure to visit briefly. The bats and wildlife rescues come first as they should and are not exploited or hurt in any way. Some of the long term residents that could not be released are used at times to provide education but never for long and not causing discomfort. As a someone who did wildlife rescue for few years I admire Pam's energy and dedication. I don't visit zoos or agree with animals in captivity. I like that Pam's focus remains on rescue,rehab and release. It's refreshing!

    Worth visiting, especially if you go by car and have enough time to hike the Kuranda loop (~3 hrs). The skyrail only gives you a few hours, just for a lunch and a stroll. The village is a commercial enterprise, a shopping-eating destination for daily visitors from Cairns; hippies are mostly gone, with a few notable exceptions. When tourists arrive in the late morning the shops open and the place feels normal; after the last train (3:30 PM) it becomes a ghost town. The las bus out is at 4:10 PM, after that - nothing. Lots of birds, look for the australasian figbird.

    We visited the Peter Jarver gallery by chance and were not disappointed . The landscape photography on show was stunning, enough for us to purchase one. The best landscape photography we have had the pleasure of viewing, thank you Peter Jarver ! The depth and detail of the photos are stunning .
    We cannot wait to have one of Peters works on our living room wall for years of pleasurable viewing .

    Great hike to complete over a few hours in the early morning or late arvo. Easy to get parking at Stoney creek and start from there. 6km return, fairly easy track a few steep bits but not that challenging. Worth it once you get to the top and see the views back out over cairns. Have a swim at Stoney creek at the end to cool off.

    Lovely friendly and informative folks working at the information centre. We were given a great map and information about the walking pathway opportunities.

    Plethora of beauty, numerous artists. I later learned of a downtown gallery, but this was a find after arriving on the SkyRail.

    Had a honey tasting and bought some honey. The shop owners were lovely. Very helpful. They had good knowledge about where you can and can't bring honey I to. A surprising little gem!

    I came across this gem when strolling through Kuranda. I was impressed by the standard of art in there. The glass jewellery by Catherine Harvey was exquisite. I found a lovely little piece of Encaustic art by Lieselotte Edwards to add to my collection at home. I’m so glad I got to spend some time here.

    A very pretty lookout and close to the Barron Falls Lookout and start of the walking tracks, if you are that way inclined.
