A romantic hideaway for two people in the mountains above Cairns, near Kuranda. Only 35 minutes by car from the city or take the Skyrail gondola
to soar over the rainforest and be picked up in Kuranda. Brilliant for a weekend of indulgence.

Kuranda has a vibrant artist community. Painters, potters, sculptors, woodworkers, jewellery and clothes designers all live around Kuranda. Their creations can be found in the galleries and shops around the village and in the popular market.

Wildlife attractions: Birdworld, The Butterfly Sanctuary, Koala Gardens, Venom Zoo, Batreach, Rainforestation, Riverboat Cruise.

The two best excursions out of Kuranda are the Skyrail and the Kuranda Train. Leave by one and return by the other:

  • The Skyrail gondolas take the short cut straight over the 7.5km of mountainous rainforest between Smithfield and Kuranda. Absolutely brilliant and
    not to be missed. A unique experience with a stop on the way to see the Barron Falls tumbling into the gorge. Skyrail will transfer you to the train
    station at Freshwater for the train ride back.

  • The Kuranda train from Cairns or Freshwater is a more leisurely means of travel but, again, not to be missed. You can only marvel at the men who
    carved this spectacular railway route out of the Kuranda Range. Wonderful photo opportunities along the way - looking down into the Barron Gorge,
    the bridge across Stoney Creek Falls and the plunging Barron Falls.

 

Platypus Springs is perfect for a weekend romantic retreat in the beautiful rainforest near Kuranda. Visit the market, buy a beautiful dress at Just
Georgeous, join the Sunday session at the pub or enjoy a delicious crepe at french-owned Petit Cafe - you won't run out of things to do.
