The early bird may get the worm, but in the rainforest, night owls have all the fun.

Meet the Daintree’s fascinating nocturnal locals in the largest, nartural open-air exhibit you’ve ever seen.

A Jurassic world where snakes and sleeping birds, bats and bandicoots, spiders, insects and dragons skulk in the shadows.

Join the night shift with our two-hour guided walk, leaving at 7:30pm from Cape Tribulation.

Bookings Essential.

I was picked up from my hostel and then we were given our torches and a safety briefing. Our guide Dwyght was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We didn't have the best weather as it was quite dry and bright but we still saw a lot-spiders, crickets, frogs, a bandicoot, 'dragons' and more! It's one of the best tours I've done... More

The biggest animal we saw was the guide's dog! That said it was an interesting and informative couple of hours led by a knowledgeable guide. We saw a few spiders, a 'dragon', a frog and a tree rat but there was always the expectation and anticipation of something bigger. Glad we did it but maybe our expectations were too high.

We did a night walk with Dwyght. We were collected from our hostel and then kitted up with torches. We saw some insects and spiders once we were taught how to find them. We also saw a Bandicoot, a Boyds dragon and a white lipped tree frog. There was also some glowing sticks from a special fungus we could see... More

My friend and I had a really enjoyable evening doing the jungle adventures night walk. Our guide Dwight made us feel safe and helped us to navigate the terrain. He was very informative and taught us lots about the different wildlife and flora and fauna, plus how to use the torch to our advantage to spot more animals easily in... More

We went on the night walk with Marina as our guide. She was really knowledgeable, friendly and kept us abused. It poured rain, but with the heavy duty rain coats we were provided we managed to not get too soaked. We saw some fire flies, a couple of different frogs, a snake and some spiders. Between these sightings, and Marina's... More

It was fun to walk at night in the middle of the rainforest. Didn't really see a lot of wildlife other than frogs, spiders, and crickets but still had fun searching for animals. The guide had a vast knowledge of the wildlife and at time shared more than we needed to know! I especially loved when we all turned off... More

Where do I start? This is sold as a jungle experience guided by experts. The reality is you are walking below the jungle surf ropes where people have been screaming and making loads of noise all day, so it's no surprise it isn't a hotbed for wildlife. As for the guide, well the guy was nice enough but had no... More

This was definitely the highlight of this tour. Imagine the torchlight shining through the skeletal fig tendrils in the cavity left from where the tree used to be. Look up and up and see the beams from the light way up high. These were big trees. Very informative guides but no wildlife beyond insects to see and to be fair... More
