Dating back to 1890, Yungaburra is charming little village a mere hour and a half from Cairns. This little village features great eateries, hotels and B&Bs and is a great place to wander around to check out its lovely old homes, churches and other historic places. The fourth Saturday of each month features the famous Yungaburra Arts and Crafts Markets, which are said to be the largest and most popular of all the region’s country markets. A network of walking tracks takes one through wetlands and rainforest, and bushwalking is an ideal way to see wildlife of the surrounding areas.
