A popular Kuranda tourist attraction has hit the real estate market for an estimated $2.8m. Knight Frank real estate agent Rob McFarlane said the family-owned Kuranda Heritage Markets has been in operation for 30 years, making the business a solid investment for a potential buyer. “It’s located in the tourist precinct of Kuranda and when I went up to visit over the holidays, the place was humming,” Mr McFarlane said. “There were tourists everywhere and it’s one of the top places on the list for anyone visiting Kuranda.” The longstanding market has a solid track record, with the main tenants including Koala Land, Birdworld and Frogs Restaurant, who have been trading for many years. The Kuranda Heritage Markets have been listed for sale by negotiation by Knight Frank Cairns.
