Kuranda, where the Skyrail cableway and the Scenic Railway either starts or ends, is a rainforest village bursting with relaxed charm, heritage and quite a bit of serenity too. Kuranda features a few markets selling a variety of different things ranging from local art to books and spicy sauces as well as souvenir stores and local art galleries. There are numerous cafes to eat from as well as well as your typical Queensland style Pub near the train station and Skyrail, set in peaceful and lush surroundings. If you are in Kuranda, why not visit some of the numerous wildlife attractions? Unfortunately, we did not get time to go to them.
