Cairns Local Markets

Whilst Kuranda and Port Douglas Markets are more well known the area has an abundance of Local markets selling hand made crafts and locally grown produce. Here you'll find a list of the area's markets and days of operation.

The Cairns Markets are all located centrally. For all other markets you'll need a way to get there.  Most of these Kuranda Skyrail & Train tours will allow some free time at the Kuranda Markets, and this Port Douglas Tour will allow you to visit the Port Douglas Markets. You could also hire a car.
