Take a journey on our Army Duck Rainforest Tour, traveling on both land and water your driver identifies and introduces fascinating plants and wildlife.

It's time

Plan Your Trip

Open daily from 9:00am – 3:30pm, Rainforestation Nature Park is only a 30-minute scenic drive from the heart of Cairns for those who have their own transport.

Rainforestation is also commonly visited as part of Kuranda Day Tours that can include Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Kuranda Scenic Railway. We recommend you look at Tropic Wings Tours and Charters who offer daily departures of their Grand Kuranda and Classic Kuranda  Tours.

Already in Kuranda? Our Shuttle Service operates daily on a regular schedule and if you’re looking for public transport, Trans North operates a few services from Cairns daily that also stop at our doorstep.

Eco Certified

Rainforestation has established a solid and credible reputation as a leading tourist attraction since 1976, focusing on sustainable practices. Our Army Duck Rainforest Tour, Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience, Rainforest Walkabout and Koala and Wildlife Park are accredited through Ecotourism and Respecting Our Culture (ROC) Certifications. The park keeps the environmental impact to a minimum and contributes to the protection of wildlife and nature. The integration of the community and cooperation with local businesses is an integral part of the business structure. Internally, the employees share the same mindset towards sustainability, which is externally communicated with the customers through interpretational and educational activities.

What people are saying

Rainforestation Testimonials

Due to the funeral arrangements of a longstanding Pamagirri Guide, and to acknowledge the cultural requirements and protocol at this difficult time, we are unable to provide Pamagirri Indigenous experiences at Rainforestation Nature Park over 4 days from October 26th to 29th (inclusive). There will be a return to regular operations on October 30th.

Thank you for your understanding.
