Our Practice

Kuranda Medical Centre is located in the heart of the scenic village of Kuranda, operating out of a light and airy architect designed, purpose-built  medical centre.

We service a diverse community of over 7,000 patients of which approximately 1,200 are Indigenous. We also have many patients from the Atherton Tablelands and Northern Beaches, who appreciate our personalised friendly service and relaxed atmosphere.

We provide a comprehensive family medical service for all walks of life.

Indigenous Acknowledgement: Kuranda Medical Centre acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.

Patients will be contacted for recall where clinically indicated.

Test Results and Referrals

Test results can be obtained in a booked consultation. Referrals to specialists must be made during a consultation and will not be provided from a phone request. In unavoidable circumstances Doctors may provide repeat referrals or scripts, however this is done at the doctors discretion.
