Kuranda is a town mostly devoted to tourism, with a lot of visitors coming in for the Kuranda Scenic Railway, Skyrail, or other attractions. And where tourists congregate, you'll find shopping. Kuranda Markets is a great place to shop for Aussie souvenirs, crafts, or sweets. It has a few pedestrian alleys lined with small colorful craft stalls. Besides the usual T-Shirts, there are a lot of other options for nicer souvenirs, and it has places for refreshments like an interesting fruit smoothie. It's not huge, and it doesn't take too long to stroll through its shady paths, and it was a nice low-key, friendly place to shop.
