The Heritage markets have lot of stores selling different interesting souvenirs and other Australian oddities. This is one of the best places during my trip that I found reasonably priced didgeridoos. It is definitely touristy but worth a small detour in Kuranda.

Lots of great clothes, curios, food - so much quality gear. Go right down the back, the food smells - incredible.

Not sure why they are called heritage markets. There are a few stalls selling souvenir stuff. I got a few beautiful Cairns t shirts for sons and husband but there was not much about heritage in this market. The sellers were very nice and helpful.

Markets, markets, markets....I love them! But the Kuranda Heritage Market was very disappointing. We drove up especially to see the markets but it was tourist central. Stalls were grubby, overpriced, vacant & it had no atmosphere. Don't waste your time.

Aimed at tourists, the village has many market stalls and shops which are all pretty expensive, with the exception of some takeaways. Some quirky, arty shops with great stuff but unfortunately $$ to match. An interesting morning or afternoon; and, if heading from Cairns -...More

I was disappointed as this is tailored to the Chinese and Japanese tourist market. Expensive and over the top Australiana. Not what I thought it would be like.

Good quality leather, crocodile hide and wooden products, candles, jewellery and a variety of other stuff. Not cheap but well made.

The first time I went to Kuranda I bought nothing. I wished I’d done so this time. My friend and I got conned into buying combs made from cow and buffalo horn. I paid $55 for mine and she paid $95. He claimed they’d do...More
