This would have to be one of the worst burgers that I have ever been presented with for quality and value for money. They did offer to refund me my money, but that would have been an insult. I was with South African friends that said you would be hard pressed to have food like that in the ghettos in... More

The food is ok if they can your order right, which seldom happens. I found one particular worker rude and would not eat there again.

A great variety of offerings for the thirsty or hungry traveller to Kuranda village. Sit out on the covered verandah, enjoy the views, the freshly made sandwiches, homemade ice cream or smoothies, or indulge with a local pie and a coffee. Do a bit of people watching and explore the shops which are all part of the iconicTrading Post. Always... More

We took the railway to Kuranda and had time to walk through town for lunch. We chose the Trading Post for the menu and views, The food and service were fine and we had a very pleasant time.

Fantastic café, excellent food, wide choice and very reasonably priced. We had a delightful, unhurried and pleasant lunch here. It was quite hot that day but really pleasant sitting at a table outside the café. I was very impressed with the selection and the cost. Everything was clean and looked inviting. Once we'd finished lunch I went roaming around the... More

Nice, clean little ice cream/smoothie/desert place while visitng in Kuranda. Very friendly and the best smoothie I have ever had. Went back for a second one after seeing the Koala's. Definitely a must stop.

We walked the streets of Kuranda and decided on the Kuranda Trading Post for a bite for lunch. What a great choice! Nice variety of sandwiches that were creative and delicious. Marina was our server and she was great! Super, outgoing personality, and when she heard us ask about "vegemite sandwiches", she couldn't help but toast up some bread, smear... More

Trading post had a nice selection to choose from I had the steak and it was cooked to my liking, like most places in Kuranda not cheap to have lunch in but not really overpriced either. As many other people have posted you must try the ice creams and sorbets they are simply amazing.

We'd just finished having lunch up the street before we realized we had other options in Kuranda, and happened upon this cute little restaurant. While we weren't at all hungry, the ice cream case caught our eye and we stopped dead in our tracks. Kuranda Trading Post had interesting flavors we typically don't see, including Cherry Ripe, Rum and Raisin,... More

Had a wonderfully relaxing & tasty lunch. It was quite crowded with a lot of tour groups when I first went in, but walked around the complex a bit checking out the stalls & shops & came back about 30 minutes later & it was much quieter & was able to pick a nice table at the edge of the... More
