The park includes significant habitats of native animals and is of outstanding ecological value. Visit the park’s Rainforest Center to see interactive displays on this rare rain forest environment. The center’s staff can guide you through the story of the rain forest's evolution and provide insight into the animal and plant species that call it their home.

  • Ancient and Beautiful! This national park has a wonderful walking track. Some of the flora dates back to prehistoric time which makes this national park a world heritage site. It's amazing to see the large scope of ancient trees and large ferns. The southern walking track is completely sealed for an easy walk. The track also includes two large waterfalls (with one you can walk under) which are simply breathtaking. A Wonderful walk in a truly special Rainforest.
