about our

butterfly shop & cafe bar

Located in the heart of Kuranda Village nestled in the hinterland rainforest of Cairns Far North Queensland, the Butterfly Shop is a unique and stylish boutique inspired by the beauty of the Ulysses Butterfly.

Silk winged magnetic butterflies, original designed jewellery, locally made soaps and body care, ladies clothes and bags, home decor and an extensive range of Paua shell jewellery are amongst the shop’s diverse products. Spacious and stylish, Butterfly Shop features it’s own licensed cafe so you can enjoy a coffee, wine or snack during your visit. Cafe seating is available while you wait for your tour bus pick up and our central location allows for an easy walk to popular tour destinations.

The Butterfly Shop is a “must see” location during your Kuranda experience for all your gift shopping and a little something special for yourself.

Living in Japan during the early 2000’s,  B and Yayoi took the opportunity to travel and research developing the concept for the  Butterfly Shop’s inception. Early versions of the store were proven in Japan but it wasn’t until their return to Australia in 2010 that B & Yayoi were compelled to truly express and the Butterfly Shop was established.

Now married and with a young family B & Yayoi lavish the lush Nth Queensland and like most up this way enjoy the rainforest, beaches and tropical islands whenever possible. “Our hope is to give our customers a truely honest experience, a genuine feeling of contentment and the desire to return in the near future”.

We found it challenging at first to create an environment colourful and fun for a family experience yet sophisticated enough for a couple sipping cocktails, we believe we have captured the ambience and are constantly striving to improve our in-store environment.

Offering a full range of hot and cold locally grown Coffee as well as Tea, Milkshakes, Sundaes, Smoothies and Cold Drinks.
