Kuranda: Rainforestation Nature Park Guided Tour

1. Kuranda: Rainforestation Nature Park Guided Tour

The award-winning Rainforestation Nature Park is a 100 acre (40-hectare) property located in the middle of Kuranda’s World Heritage Rainforest. Locally owned and operated park offers three unique experiences to visitors. Board an amphibious World War II Army Duck for a land and water adventure through the rainforest, as your Duck Captain identifies and explains fascinating plants including ferns, orchids, strangler figs, and the infamous stinging tree. As you move through the water, keep an eye out for turtles, fish, eels and water birds, or for birds, pythons and other reptiles on land. Rainforestation has 12 of the historic Army Ducks (officially spelled DUKW) which hold up to 30 passengers and have a combination of 6-wheel drive, a propeller, and rudder. After disembarking, visit the Tropical Fruit Orchard, containing over 40 species of exotic tropical fruit trees. This tranquil setting provides the perfect opportunity to view and learn about fruits of the region and the world, including jackfruit, pawpaw, lychees, carambola, and star apple. The Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience offers the opportunity to see traditional dance performances in the setting of the beautiful Rainforest Amphitheatre. You can also take part in the Dreamtime Walk along the Rainbow Serpent walkway, then watch a display of traditional spear throwing and didgeridoo playing. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn the art of throwing a boomerang, and try it out for yourself – can you get your boomerang to come back to you? Take a self-guided tour in the Koala & Wildlife Park and see crocodiles, kangaroos, wallabies,  snakes, dingoes, a cassowary, and the only Tasmanian Devils in North Queensland. Rainforestation is also home to a rescued Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo. Don’t miss Jack the Ripper, one of the largest crocodiles in captivity. Coming in at over 5 meters in length and weighing almost a tonne, you can view him from the safety of our elevated boardwalks. Explore the park at your own pace and hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies as they roam freely through the park.

We were amazed from the hospitality of our guide Eva. She drove us through the lush rainforest on the board of WW2 Army Duck (amphibious 6wheels car) She explained us all the facts about the difference between the palm trees and the other trees in the rainforest. We didn’t quite have the possibility the see any animals out there, because it very hot and humid out there. But we do see different birds around the forest. We enjoyed then an hour break, tried tropical friuts we have never eaten before. Me personally really enjoyed the talk to the indigenous people. My man and i tried to throw a boomerang as the Pamagarri people do, we heard them play some music. At the after We took part in the show,we have been showed the footsteps of thr original aboriginal dance. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for some real Australia experience!

Such a fab place! So many roos everywhere which you can stroke/feed at your own leisure. The dancing show & tour guides from the tribe were fab & interesting. I paid extra to hold the koala & have a picture. But was only 22AUD for us to do it as a couple which i thought was a pretty good price!

The animal keepers were very informative the guide on the army ducks was also very knowledgeable and the aboriginal dance were excellent overall we had a great day.

The experience was great. I especially liked the Aboriginal cultural experience and the army duck

Great animal encounters

This place is awesome to get close to the animals and to Hold a koala
