DescriptionThe 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 wonderful 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 talks about 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, 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, paw paw, 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? The Koala and Wildlife Park has a plethora of native Australian species to see including wombats, lizards, snakes, dingoes, Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroos, and the cassowary. Rainforestation is the only wildlife park in North Queensland to have Tasmanian Devils – make sure you check them out! There is also a barramundi lake where you can see the region’s most famous (and tastiest) fish. They grow up to 2 meters in length and can weigh up to 60kg! 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 the elevated boardwalks. Explore the park at your own pace, and hand feed kangaroos and wallabies as they roam freely through the park. Alternatively, join one of the experienced wildlife keepers on a guided tour. Rainforestation offers a range of meal options as you enjoy the sumptuous World-Famous BBQ Buffet Lunch with a delicious selection including tender steaks, BBQ chicken and sweet potatoes with paperbark cooked traditional Kup-Murri style (many vegetarian options available). If you’re after something lighter, you can try the range of fruits, cheese and salads available, or you can visit the Tropical Treats Juice Bar for fruit, ice cream and fresh juice.
