“Ku­randa of­fers a gor­geous life­style, along with the vil­lage at­mos­phere and the pri­vacy of the sur­round­ing rain­for­est.

“Ku­randa of­fers so much more per dol­lar value com­pared to liv­ing in the CBD.

“More and more peo­ple are look­ing for the re­laxed life­style which Ku­randa of­fers with it only be­ing within 25 min­utes’ drive from the CBD.

“There are plenty of fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties and friendly lo­cals.”

Re­cent RP Data fig­ures show Ku­randa’s me­dian house price is $435,000, while the me­dian ask­ing rent is $380 a week.

Al­most 50 houses have sold in the rain­for­est lo­cal­ity in the past 12 months.

“Com­pared to the same peri- od five years ago, the me­dian house sales price for houses in­creased 24.3 per cent, which equates to a com­pound an­nual growth rate of 4.4 per cent,” the re­port stated.

Other af­ford­able homes in town in­clude a $235,000, 1012sq m, two- bed­room Barang St prop­erty and a $209,000, twobed­room block house about eight min­utes from the vil­lage.
