New market stalls
By Original Kuranda Rainforest Market
13 Sep 2017Wind your way through the funky lanes of the Original Kuranda Rainforest Market and you will discover many new stalls with unique handcrafted products have opened in the past couple of months.
Among the more unusual items are handmade buffalo horn combs made locally by Ed Lane. Ed sells his combs alongside exotic candles and soaps made by his partner Sayaka which can be seen at Il Mare Candles (shops 47, 48, 49).
Both spend a lot of time hand crafting the items in their stalls with Sayaka taking two days to craft her colourful beach candles, while Ed takes seven months to perfect his combs. "I use water buffalo horn from the Northern Territory and dry land buffalo from the Kimberley. Buffalo horn helps the keratin in your hair by closing the cuticle as you comb instead of creating static electricity like plastic combs do. This helps hair grow stronger, shinier and healthier," he says.
"My grandmother gave me a horn comb that is 137 years old now and still in mint condition. They originated in Vietnam where they have been in use for 1200 years. I brought some back to Australia and worked out how to make them. It is a seven-month process to flatten the horn and make it into a comb."
The Lighthouse (Stall C) is another newcomer to the Original Markets with bric-a-brac, jewellery and antiques, while Now & Zen (42) is an eclectic stall promising inspiration for life, wellbeing and awakening.
If you are hungry there are plenty of new choices such as Falafellicious (14-15) which is serving amazing falafels with the likes of lemon and herb cabbage and Israeli chopped salad. They are so good that Bondi Vet Dr Chris Brown went three times during the week he was filming at the Kuranda Amphitheatre.
Those with a sweet tooth can get a chocolate fix at Heavenly Cacao (9) which makes wholefood candy using only fresh fruits, natural ingredients and cacao or cool down at Frozen Nature (13) which sells locally made ice cream and frozen fruit delights.

Flight of fancy
By Original Kuranda Rainforest Market
21 Jun 2017If you fancy yourself in a set of wings, explore the Original Kuranda Rainforest Markets to find the perfect pair for your next selfie. Kuranda wildlife artist Rebecca Koller has discovered seven wings in the markets and another at Just Gorgeous in Coondoo St.
"The idea is to give visitors a free activity to do and have a memory from their trip to Kuranda. If they can find them all then they will have explored each area within the markets and seen many of the fantastic businesses there. One set of wings can only be seen after hours as they are on a roller door to a shop," she says.
