Rainforestation Nature Park
The award-winning Rainforestation Nature Park is a 100 acre (40 hectare) tourist attraction set in the midst of World Heritage Rainforest. 30 minutes by coach from Cairns and five minutes away from Kuranda Village. It's locally owned and operated by the Woodward Family. Board an amphibious World War II Army Duck for a unique rainforest tour on both land and water, where your guide will identify and explain fascinating plants and wildlife as you pass by. Then meander through the Tropical Fruits Orchard, with over 40 different species of exotic tropical fruit trees. Learn about indigenous culture with the interactive Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience. Join the Dreamtime Walk which includes boomerang throwing, spear-throwing and the didgeridoo. The park contains many Australian species such as crocodiles, dingoes, snakes, lizards, cassowary and Tasmanian devils. Handfeed kangaroos and wallabies, or have your photo taken cuddling a cute koala or holding a small crocodile (optional extra cost). Enjoy a fantastic buffet lunch or snack in the licensed Colonial or Outback restaurant with much variety of meals to choose from. There is the Tropical Treats Juice Bar for fruits, ice creams and fresh juices.
