Coral Coast Leather is locally owned and operated by Norman Guy and his family. Norman is the craftsman who makes the unique Crocodile Leather and Cowhide Leather belts. Each one created with pride.

Norman started in the Kuranda Heritage Markets in 1993. After a few years crafting cowhide leather belts, he branched out into making crocodile skin belts. The Australian Saltwater crocodile skin is the best quality in the world. Norman hand selects each and every skin for his belts from a local crocodile farm. Each belt is unique and comes from a different crocodile. Each one is individually made. When choosing other products and suppliers for Coral Coast Leather, Norman works closely with Australian suppliers to ensure consistent quality. He is committed to supporting local and quality family businesses, just like ours.

Everything on this website, you can also find in our shop, Coral Coast Leather in the main street in Kuranda in beautiful Far North Queensland.

About Norman I was born in the North East of England and first visited Kuranda on a working holiday in 1980. I loved this beautiful village in the rainforest and it was a natural place for me to settle permanently with my family in 1988.

I opened my stall at the Port Douglas Sunday craft market in 1998. I am well known there as the ‘belt man’. I really enjoy seeing customers on holiday who come back year after year, even several generations of the same family, to buy my belts. In August 2008, I opened a shop, Coral Coast Leather, in the main street of Kuranda and everything on our website is available in the shop. In our shop, you will see some local ‘characters’ including Maureen our resident 3.3 metre resident crocodile. Maureen has her own story … we look forward to seeing you at Coral Coast Leather soon. In the meantime, browse our online store to see our latest stock.
