If you love nature, exploring and animals, then this might just be for you!
Ranforestation Nature Park is 100 acres of World Heritage Rainforest, and is a super eco-friendly option for your family day out.
There is a host of activities to do when you arrive. You can experience the tropical rainforest for a very unique perspective with Army Duck Rainforest Tours!
The whole family can see fascinating plants and wildlife pass by. Turtles, fish and eels might even pop close to say hello! This 45 minute tour takes 30 people out to learn about interesting features in the rainforest, such as the stinging trees (ouch!) and strangler figs (double ouch!)
Immerse the kids in the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience. The Australian Indigenous culture is one of the oldest in the world, and here kids can learn all about the customs and traditions that still exist in the rainforest of Kuranda! This takes about an hour and includes a fun dance show! You can also enjoy a 30 minute dreamtime walk!
Love wildlife? There are a couple of special experiences for you then!
The Rainforestation National Park have a series of elevated boardwalks that provide close-up uninterrupted views of the Australian wildlife – what kind of creatures can you spot!?
Then there is the Koala and Wildlife park where you can hand-feed the free roaming kangaroos and wallabies or check out the carnivorous tiger quoll, and the endangered cassowary! See if you can spot the sweet and slow wombats and lace monitors, and view local snakes and other bigger reptiles! You can also get your photo taken with a koala!
With shuttle-buses available for the short transfer to Australia’s “Village in the Rainforest”, you are able to visit the Kuranda market, and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, and they can tailor Cairns Day Tours to include the iconic Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, and Kuranda Scenic Railway.
Rainforestation National Park is a nature filled option for your family day out if you just love animals and getting out and exploring!
