  • 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.
  • If hot, humid weather is to your liking, then this is a place for you. Having visited a number of temperate rain forests, seeing a tropical rain forest was a real education. So much life packed into such a small place. Go there but buy your bottle of water on the way in because you'll need it.
  • As for now the worst thing in Australia. I just lost 35 AUD for nothing. Better is to go and walk thru one of the paths outside this center... Sorry, but it was extremaly boring.
  • Very friendly & well informed staff, excellent commentary throughout the walking tour of this green & serene setting; even had the pleasure of a cassowary & her junior's company!
  • As a parent with school age kids i have to disagree with previous negative reviews. Yes there are similar walks available in the area but for me the educational value of the self guided tours and information boards was enormous and really got the kids interested in learning about the plants and animals of the rain forest rather than just tuning out and getting bored. Of course for my son the new life size dinosaurs were a huge hit too! All in all a great family outing / adventure!
