Kuranda – it is a very hippy little village populated probably half and half between last chance trendies and the Djabugay Aboriginal people. It is extremely reliant on tourism and there are three separate markets all set up in the town and two large hotels...More

Huge variety of Aboriginal art. Items could be a bit pricy though. Big store so allow a bit of time to stroll around. Few staff and they won’t bug you while you view.

Very interesting and extensive display of Aboriginal art and artefacts. Many of the artwork were magnificently drawn, and showed immense attention to detail. As such, they were quite pricey.
