  • As residents of Townsville, my wife and I are frequent visitors to this part of the world, where we never miss an opportunity to visit this market with it's many interesting shops, and people. Browsin...  more »
  • Only open from 10am until 3pm. Shops in the area are nice but the markets are small and repetitive. One market behind the shops in the Main Street sells new clothing, jewellery and gifts and another t...  more »

  • There are a few markets in Kuranda but the one that has the most charm and bohemian atmosphere is still the Original Rainforest Markets. It's a bit hidden behind the new shops and cafes in front but head down the tiny laneways and you will discover a world with quaint cafes and unique shops. There's a mini golf course, cafes, magic shows and you can even get a traditional Japanese tea ceremony in one of the tea shops. Highly recommended
  • The Market is lovely but I gave it 2 stars to bring attention to a shop here called "Laotoet Combs" selling buffalo combs for $60-$120. Don't fall for the stuff the guy tells you, he is just a very conning salesman. I searched online and none of the benefits were ever proven and using my comb for a few months now it made absolutely no difference to my hair quality. Also I checked the prices online and they sell for maximum $20-$25 in Europe. In fact, in Vietnam they are only $2. I won't be surprised if this guy imports his combs from Vietnam pretending they are his handicrafts.
  • Beautiful place filled with beautiful people. Little mountainous village vibes with cheap gifts and ornaments for people of all ages. Fresh air and shop owners who care. Food stalls are filled with fresh food at acceptable prices and the gifts range from inexpensive to more pricey with higher quality. Obviously depending on your needs. Definitely not to miss when in Cairns.
  • Spent an afternoon,coffee then food then another coffee,found myself back there a day later..Relaxing and an atmosphere that reminded me of more optimistic times
  • Absolutely love these markets. Fantastic vibe that keeps me going back. Make sure you slow down and really explore: the market steps down to many levels and gets more interesting, the deeper into it you go. Stop to chat with the quirky and talented store owners who have many unique handmade goods on offer. Lots of delicious food options also! The vegan falafel is out of this world! I also love the smoothies at jungle juice and the Japanese bowls. Yum! 🌿
