Kuranda offers a feast of artistic, wildlife, shopping and dining pursuits. Order local seafood at a palm-shaded outdoor cafe, then visit the Original Kuranda Rainforest Market for incense and hippie chic. The Kuranda Arts Co-op specializes in locally crafted artworks and pottery, the Heritage Markets has jewelry and opals, and the New Kuranda Markets sells didgeridoos, boomerangs and other souvenirs of indigenous Australia.
Croc-spotting cruises head out from Kuranda along the Barron River, signed walking trails lead through the rain forest, and all sorts of animals are corralled in these parts – cuddle a koala, spot flutterbys at the butterfly sanctuary, see big cats at the wildlife reserve, or hang out with feathered friends at BirdWorld.
