Kuranda - The Village in the Rainforest
An amazing place to visit after your hot air balloon ride is Kuranda Village. Kuranda is located in Tropical North Queensland, just 25km northwest of Cairns and is surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest. Kuranda is known as the Village in the Rainforest.
You may wish to take our self-drive option to the Cairns Highlands for your balloon ride and then a scenic drive to Kuranda. Or you may wish to pick one of our tour options that includes transfers from Cairns, Palm Cove or Port Douglas accommodation.
We have tour options that include the Kuranda Historic Rail Train, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and free time in Kuranda Village.
Kuranda is bursting with shops, restaurants, cafes and markets as well as nature attractions such as Australia Venom Zoo, Bat Reach, Butterfly Sanctuary, Bird world and Koala world . Learn more about aboriginal culture and history and perhaps purchase an aboriginal artefact or maybe some other handcrafted goods. It’s a great place to relax and unwind on your Queensland holiday.
