Expensive driving by car.
Speed cameras on road to Kuranda.
Last trip cost me $431 and 3 demerit points.
The Department of Transport fee leaves a sour taste in any trip from Cairns or the Port to Kuranda.

Had a great day looking at market stalls, doing bush walks, seeing lots of things in museums etc, having a delicious lunch & also managed to fit in a round of mini golf. We feel we barely scratched the surface of what to do and see in Kuranda though so we must revisit in the future...Loved it!

What a delightful place. There are so many funky shops here there is sure to be something for everyone. Most all shops were open and we really enjoyed every minute we spent here. There are several options to grab a bite to eat, so many in fact that it was hard to choose.
If you're an 'old Hippy' or just a Hippy at Heart or just a lover of Markets, you'll surely enjoy the kind of creativity displayed here.

Make sure you leave yourself enough time to take it all in, there is so much to see and experience here.

Yuck. Did not enjoy my time at this place at all. You walk through a fog of incense everywhere you go, and it’s full of hippy, Boho junk that will just end up in landfill. Markets is an incredibly generous word for this down and out dirty, stinky little town when nobody bothers to brush their hair or clean their teeth. Would have left straight away if I had a car but had to wait for the train. Do not recommend at all unless you want to catch a disease

We went for a look dissapointed alot of repetitive products in the stalls. Colourful yes, would spend along time here, no. Insence very strong throughout the market. A bit over powering. I see now why other reviews say had its hay day. Go for a quick look expect crowds in the Karunda village cafes. 🫖🥤

The first lot of markets we came across in the centre of town were pretty pathetic so was hoping The Heritage Markets will be a cut above. But really nothing of interest at all. You can view them in about 5 minutes. These were also small but better variety and interest than the other one. I had read that there was great places to eat and the best of this and that and really we couldn’t see anything that really took our fancy. We bought nothing and ate in the main street. A bit of a let down.

Probably could do with a refurbishment, souvenirs as expected, tarot readings, a largish busy cafe with the best things perhaps being the local produce that you can buy,

I was in Kuranda recently with my daughter for the first time in ages. I recall thinking it was pretty ordinary last time. Now, I think it is worst in class for a so-called tourist attraction. Nothing good to say. Can’t even find a decent bite to eat without working extremely hard. I’d suggest the German Sausage Hut; they were great but were getting no favours from the Kuranda location. Surprisingly dreadful and I won’t be back!

What a disappointment, we had heard so much about both Kuranda Markets and were surprised they did not live up to their name. If you like your hippie clothing, leather goods, opals/gemstones then this may please you. We did this market in about 15 minutes.
