Here you can find a treasure at the Heritage Markets, enjoy local musicians while you dine along the main street, or take a hike though rainforest.
You can get your wildlife fix at Birdworld, the Australian Venom Zoo, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary or Koala Gardens.
The Village in the Rainforest concept was promoted from the 1970s in a bid to boost tourism as well as attract those seeking a bohemian enclave in which to reside. Today just over 3000 people call Kuranda home.
