  • 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!
  • Staff are really rude and unhelpful. When we asked would we see any wildlife inside we were told to "go visit a zoo if you wanna see wildlife" They were also unwilling to tell us where the free boardwalks were. You are better off driving 2 mins up the road to Jindalba where there is a Free Boardwalk it is after all the same forest so you will see the same range stuff. At $32 per adult and $88 per family it is very expensive and it is such a shame to see so many visitors get back in their cars and drive off without discovering the free Daintree walks which need to be better signposted.
  • No value for money. You pay $32 to see the same rainforest you can see down or up the road. Audio guide very boring. Don't waste your time and money.
  • Don't waste your money. $32 for an adult to see the same rainforest you can see further up the road, like for example on the Dubuji Boardwalk. Didn't see a single bird, snake or insect, except the ones on display. Saw some golden orb spiders that we also saw for free up the road. Would be informative for school groups
  • Fascinating views of ancient forest. Self guided commentary was great as were signs and information posts. Didn't see cassowary but wildlife cannot be expected to perform to order, unfortunately. We thought it one of the best value for money experiences in the area.
