2 Overview

Travel to the picturesque mountain retreat of Kuranda Village, just 25 kilometres northwest of Cairns in Far North Queensland, Australia. Kuranda is a vibrant little town surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest. Historic buildings from the village's past now house a variety of upmarket restaurants, cafes and bars. It is still laid back, but with a style and sophistication that sets it apart from other venues and attractions in Cairns.
