The rainforest around Kuranda has been home to the Djabugay people for over 10,000 years, and Europeans began to explore the area throughout the nineteenth century. 

The name Kuranda is derived from the Yindinji work, Kuran, referring to a native acorn leafed plant, and the town of Kuranda was established in 1885.

Kuranda is now known for

  • Its proximity to the Wet Tropic's of Queensland's World Heritage Area

  • Skyline Rainforest Cable Way

  • Kuranda Scenic Railway

"We are close to World Heritage Listed Rainforest and the walking tracks of the fantastic Barron Gorge National Park. This unique rainforest village, with its diverse population and terminal for Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Rail, is the gateway to Atherton Tableland (Cairns Highlands) and the Outback (Savannah Way and Cape York Peninsula)".

From bird watching to taking a trip on the Scenic Kuranda Railway, there's plenty to do in Kuranda!
