  • You get an audio device and a booklet with info and you can start your walking route through the rainforest. It is all like, but many things we had already heard during other tours or read in books. Sometimes you need at 3 metres away 3 Listen audio clips of a few minutes. You stand there than what silly with that thing to your ear. In the end it was not worth the money to do this. You can also go hiking in the rain forest itself.

  • Wonderful experience brought to life by the informative audio tours. We actually listened to the kids tour so we could discuss the information at each stop with our daughter. Educational and inspiring and a great way to experience the wonders of the Daintree from an angle not found elsewhere as you wander the elevated walkways. Friendly staff and animatronic dinosaurs round out a great place to bring the kids!
  • Amazing self guided experience we had with an amazing audio learning tool. There are 5 tours in the centre and you can do all of them in under tow hours with stopping and enjoying every part of the centre. The canopy is absolutely a magnificent experience and the view at the top is breathtaking.
  • Such an excellent place to visit! The audio tour makes it. We were there for a couple of hours and could have stayed longer. Our 4 and 6 year olds were engaged the whole time. The tower gives you a beautiful perspective on such an amazing natural wonder! Thanks to the staff for their helpful a Nd knowledgeable assistance. Can't recommend highly enough.
  • A lot of information about wildlife, flora and fauna in the area. The of aboriginal explanation made it interesting. Walks and the parks itself with the mechanical dinosaurs and some pythons closed in a cage, made it an attraction park for families and kids. Nothing wild at all, but useful if interested in native plants and wildlife.
  • Awesome experience at the Centre :-) Knowledgeable staff, great audio guide and book resources that corresponded very well to the various nature tours available. Thank you!
