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.

  • The "Rainforestation Nature Park" is a must visit!! It is great value for money when you book the package including the park, the ride on the army duck and the aboriginal experience. The park is great and has a very relaxed feel. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Smaller than other parks, however, the park tour which is offered was very informative! You learn a lot about the animals in the park which was great fun. There is a kangaroo feeding area which was also great fun (and there is lots of other animals to explore in the park). The army duck ride was also very great fun! You will go on a ride through the forest area and learn a lot about native plants. Then the army duck turns into a boat which is a great and fun experience. Don't miss out on this piece of history - the army ducks in the park are original army ducks from world war 2. The aboriginal experience is perhaps a bit more on the casual side, however, very fun and very informative. After the show, you will get an introduction to throwing boomerangs, how to play the didgeridoo and spear throwing. All three activities were very informative and fun, especially since the groups are small. We had a great day and package is really great value for money!
  • Interesting place to see though all the activities were very rushed. I was very disappointed with the army duck ,interesting but not worth doing as it only went into a largish type dam not into a river. Need I say more. Cultural dancers were good,they put their heart and soul into the dancing and good to see young boys involved. A nice small collection of native animals which was nice to see, especially Agro the croc, wallabies ,koalas and a few birds.
  • Very popular stop near Kuranda Check deals available and combine your trip with scenic train and skyrail
  • Fun Amphibious Army Duck ride with excellent local knowledge of the flora and fauna.
  • Nothing special. Typical tropical bushes.
