Rainforestation Nature Park, Kuranda

(380+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
From elevated walkways through the trees or aboard an all-terrain, amphibious World War II Army Duck, you can explore the 404,686 sq m (100 acres) of World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest at Rainforestation Nature Park. Knowledgeable guides point out and explain the abundance of native plants and animals, including over 40 varieties of exotic fruits, as well as koalas, crocodiles, snakes, and dingoes. The park also works to support and preserve Australia’s indigenous culture. After watching a corroboree--a traditional dance--performance by local Aborigines, you can try your hand at throwing a boomerang or playing the didgeridoo. Make Rainforestation Nature Park a part of your Kuranda vacation plans using our Kuranda trip builder.

  • Through various cable cars high over the tops of the rainforest. 2 x switching to stations at the top of the forest with view of platforms! Try a glass bottom kabelbaanzit! Costs $10 extra but you get a very different experience! s'Ochtendsvroeg is the most beautiful and quietest, and you come in early to Kuranda before the many tourists. Many shops with authentic and original souvenirs and restaurants to choice. Always a didgeridoospeler to work! Back the special old train. Winding and picturesque way down. Many photo and film material to collect. Tunnels and waterfalls on the trip. The railway line dates back to the second world war. Along this line were soldiers stationed in the neighborhood fought and injured to rest home, where they could recover.

  • Awesome family day out! Accommodated beautifully with our family, 6 month old and 3 year old, pram was no issues at all. Great range of animals in the wildlife park, including a rarely seen Tasmanian Devil and one very large Crocodile. Army Duck was amazing, interesting commentary and the hightlight of course was taking her for a spin on the water. Fun Day out!
  • We loved this place and had a fantastic day at Rainforestation! Got to see a pristine rainforest during the army duck tour and a load of wildlife walking through the caged reserve - lizards, snapper turtles, koala's, kangaroos, snakes, croc's you name it. Knowledgeable and friendly staff who were more than happy to assist, joke and provide valuable information on the forest and animals. A must visit for anyone travelling to the general area.
  • Another great and unique experience covered. Good information and the duck was interesting thing to ride on.
  • What a cool spot. So many things to do from exploring the shops to going on a guided tour of the rainforest by army duck(car that is able to go into water as well). Our guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot of interesting information. Holding a koala at the zoo was an unforgettable experience. Would love to visit again some day!
  • Had a fantastic day at Rainforestation, all staff were so welcoming and friendly as well as informed, full of fun and knowledge. Loved the Pamagarri performance as well as the wildlife park where all the animals seemed really happy and well cared for. Great to see so much pristine rainforest on the Army Duck too, absolutely loved our day and will definitely be back!
