Kuranda
The Essential
Recommended
An old mining town perched at 328m altitude on the Atherton Plateau, in the middle of a dense rainforest, Kuranda has become an ultra-touristy, but not unpleasant, village: it has an arts and crafts market, art galleries and several attractions that enable you to spend a pleasant day close to nature. You can come from Cairns by car, but the most fun way to get here is to take the cable car in one direction and the panoramic train in the other.
