You cannot miss a visit to this place and you definitely won't leave empty handed. I could stand there and watch them weave their magic in candy-making for hours

We really enjoyed the Kuranda candy shop. They did a demonstration of how they make their hard candy, and then they gave out delicious free samples. Their prices were reasonable and their staff was friendly.

Really friendly staff, they give you taste testers (there's sooo many flavours to pick from) and really cheap which I didn't expect. It was so cool to watch how they make the candy and get the little pictures in the middle of the candy.

Difficult to find car parking near by but Candy Kitchen is located on Main Street. Plenty of candy selection to pick from on the shelf and purchase but take plenty of CA$H as there is no eftpos available.
