KURANDA
THE "VILLAGE IN THE RAIN FOREST"
Great Life Style Property sloping to the Barron River.
4.84 ha - 12 acre of land
2.5 acres cleared and landscaped


   

   

   

   

   

   

   


The spectacular Barron River is the high light of this property and can be accessed by a walking path leading to a comfortable, grassed spot right on the banks of the river.  The rock formation is the perfect spot for the keen fisherman.

A permanent creek meanders through the property and can be crossed by a bridge.
A waterfall creates a swimming hole inviting for a rest amongst the trees watching
birds and butterflies that add colour and charm to the property.

The 2.5 ha landscaped house site is situated at the highest point of the property and would allow for a spectacular view over the Barron River.

This property lends itself to a very enjoyable lifestyle, that could accommodate a sprawling residence with all the desirable additions, tennis court, pool and guest house (paying guests or family).

The 3 bedroom/1 bathroom house, the shed and rainwater tank as well as town water, provide temporary accommodation, whilst the residence is built.

Since the neighbouring property has subdivided some of their land, there is also the possibility to create a friendly, like minded neighbourhood on that land.

Price: reduced from $995,000 to $710,000

Some facts about the "Village in the Rain Forest"
Kuranda is located 25 km from Cairns. The Elevation is 330 meters.

Parts of Kuranda, particularly along its eastern edge, are protected within the Kuranda National Park and Barron Gorge National Park .  Both national parks belong to the Wet Tropics Heritage Area.  The Barron Gorge Forest Reserve and Formatine Forest Reserve have been established in the south of Kuranda. Closer to the centre of the town is Jumrum Creek Conservation Park.  An elongated dam created by a weir built for a power station was constructed in 1935 and is used to today for recreation.
The town is surrounded by tropical rainforest, which is abundant with wildlife and popular amongst birdwatchers. There are several short walks around the village including the Jum Jum Creek Environmental Park, which includes the River Walk.  Walking to the Barron Gorge National Park to visit Barron Falls is also popular, another 1 kilometer each way to Wright's Lookout.
Being situated in the tropics Kuranda experiences only mild variations in temperature and its seasons consist of a dry season and a wet season. Generally, Kuranda is 2-5 degree C cooler than Cairns and is often referred to as the "air conditioned suburb of Cairns", mainly due to its surrounding Rain Forest and its Elevation.  It is rare that temperature exceeds 31 degree C in summer, night minimums rarely drop below 20 degree C.  Winter maximums typically are a consistent 25 degree C, however night minimums can drop to 8 degree C, owing to clear skies at this time of year (June - August) and cooler air movements originating from the southern Atherton tablelands.

Smithfield with all its facilities is only 15 minutes down the ranges, a beautiful drive with vistas over the coast.  The airport is another 10 minutes drive.  A Kindy, Primary and High schools in Kuranda including the Steiner School are in close proximity and the James Cook University is 20 minutes down the road.

Not only does this property offer all the beauty of the rainforest and Barron River, the location is also a heaven for an active lifestyle amongst nature.
