 The earliest inhabitants, the Djabugay, lived in harmony with the rainforest. There was a good deal of trade between Tableland Rainforest Aborigines and those on the coast. In 1876, John Doyle camped near Kuranda when seeking a route between the Hodgkinson’s Gold Field and the coast. Kuranda was founded 12 years later, and the first train steamed into Kuranda in 1891. 23 men had died building the line. Tourism had its foundation before 1920. Honeymoon couples would stay at one of the hotels and visit (by rowboat) " Fairyland " and " Paradise ".

An early tourist publication had this to say about Kuranda, " No township in the world has such splendour within its environs… no wonder that journalists, authors, artists and poets have tried to express in permanent form the emotions which it has stirred within them, " Tjis remains true today. Kuranda Markets first opened in 1978 with 15 stalls. For more information, buy The Kuranda.
