Explore Australia's World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest at the Rainforestation Nature Park in Kuranda. The park is set on 100 acres (40 hectares) of pristine rainforest within five minutes of Kuranda village, accessible from Cairns by road or by the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway or the Kuranda Scenic Railway (transport between Cairns and Kuranda is not included). This eco-friendly Kuranda attraction offers three unique experiences: the Army Duck Rainforest Tour with Tropical Fruit Orchard, Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience, and the Koala and Wildlife Park.
Your day at the Rainforestation Nature Park includes the following tours and experiences:
Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience (1 hour)
Get an insight into the world's longest-living culture, that of the Australian Aborigines. Hear the Dreamtime stories, watch a corroboree (traditional dance) performance and learn how to throw a boomerang or play the didgeridoo. The Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience takes approximately one hour, including the Pamagirri Aboriginal Dance Show held in the Rainforest Amphitheatre daily at 10:30am, noon and 2pm, and the Dreamtime Walk conducted either before or after the show. Dreamtime walks are available at 10am, 11am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm.
Army Duck (1 hour)
There’s no better way to see the rainforest than in an Army Duck. This all-terrain, amphibious World War II Army Duck will have you driving down dirt tracks and cruising the waterways. As you traverse part of the property on your unforgettable 45-minute rainforest tour, your knowledgeable Duck Captain / guide will point out and explain the native flora and fauna. Army Duck tours depart daily at 10am, 11am, noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Koala and Wildlife Park (30 minutes)
Take a walk with the keepers along the boardwalks at the Koala and Wildlife Park for a close-up view of Australia's unique native animals. See crocodiles, wallabies and the shy cassowary foraging for food. For an additional cost (payable direct), you can have your picture taken holding a cuddly koala or even a small crocodile! The park is open every day from 9am to 4pm, with talks and demonstrations available throughout the day.
