Rainforestation Nature Park, Kuranda

(4/5 based on 380 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Aboard the amphibious vehicle, walk to the Park. I think is also the description of the plant tour guide Japan there are in it for fun?. And Koala hug photos can take at an additional cost. Here gives photo data by email. Subdued but was glad.

  • 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!
