Kuranda, known as Ngunbay (meaning place of the platypus in the local Djabugay language), is a small vibrant town of creative souls nestled in the World Heritage listed rainforest of Far North Queensland. Kuranda’s denizens are an eccentric mix of indigenous Djabugay, Bulway and Tableland tribes, cattle farmers, hippies from the original Aquarius generation, world gypsies and their numerous offspring.
Kuranda Roots is now in its 12th year and is a celebration of music and creative culture aimed at bringing together people from all generations and all walks of life in one love and unity. From humble beginnings at the fantastic Kuranda Amphitheatre, Roots now calls The Billabong home – a rambling ranch in the hills only 3km from town with comfortable campgrounds surrounded by forest. The festival spans two days, with a program featuring an exciting array of bands, DJ’s, dancers, workshops, a market village and is very family friendly.
