Honeybee House is situated just 9 km from Kuranda with all its attractions. We own the Kuranda Riverboat and would be delighted to welcome you on any of our cruises on the Barron River in Kuranda or our Paradise Kuranda Guided Rainforest Walks with light refreshments. Cairns is just 37 km from Honeybee House, so, you've not got far to go to Cairns to hop on a boat for the day to visit the Great Barrier Reef. Honeybee House is a great choice for those seeking a quiet retreat for their holiday. More
