Rainforestation Nature Park is part of the CaPTA Group and established by Charles and Pip Woodward in 1974. This unique tourist attraction is set on 100 acres of World Heritage Rainforest and situated five minutes travel from Kuranda Village, and half an hour by Coach from Cairns in Tropical North Queensland, Australia.
Rainforestation Nature Park is eco-friendly and hosts Army Duck Rainforest Tours (which includes the Tropical Fruit Orchard), Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience and Kuranda’s largest Koala & Wildlife Park. The amphitheatre’s natural setting provides a beautiful backdrop for the Pamagirri Corroboree; a traditional dance performance depicting aspects of indigenous culture including animals, food gathering and hunting. The rainforest serves as the theatre walls whilst sounds of wildlife provide accompaniment to the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo and clapsticks.
You can then take a guided tour along an all-weather walk-way modelled on the Rainbow Serpent which gives you a fascinating insight into aspects of aboriginal culture. Try your hand at boomerang throwing, observe spear-throwing and hear your Pamagirri Guide play the didgeridoo, an ancient instrument. Listen carefully for sounds imitating Kangaroos or the Kookaburra. You can then take the Bushtucker Walk to further enhance your indigenous experience.
Experience the tropical rainforest from a totally unique perspective aboard an Amphibious World War II Army Duck. Your knowledgeable Duck Captain identifies fascinating plants and wildlife as you pass by, before splashing into the lake for a cruise, with plenty more wildlife to be seen. The Army Duck Tour also includes a tour of the Tropical Fruit Orchard which has over 40 different varieties of exotic tropical fruit trees on display. This experience provides the ideal opportunity to touch and taste the exotic fruits of Tropical North Queensland, and from around the world.
Wander at your leisure or join a guided group through our Koala and Wildlife Park with our experienced Wildlife Keepers to learn about Australian wildlife. A series of elevated boardwalks provide close-up uninterrupted views of Koalas, Wombats, Saltwater and Freshwater Crocodiles and of course our Tasmanian Devils.
To top off your day, you can also treat yourself to Australian Fare at one of our three restaurants or have a snack at our Tropical Treats Juice bar.
