About Kuranda Rainforest Journeys
Engage all of your senses to explore the oldest tropical rainforest on Earth, exotic fruit orchards and fascinating pioneer history. Your personal tour guide will take you on an ATV journey through a secluded estate nestled atop the majestic Barron Falls, surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest and home to the elusive cassowary. Old timber trails lead the way into the heart of the rainforest where you will discover some of the oldest, tallest and most distinctive flora. Several antique structures will give you an insight into the pioneer history of North Queensland. An orchard with more than 600 exotic fruit trees will remind you of nature’s goodness and richness with tasting available when in season. The chance to encounter a cassowary will make this the most unforgettable journey.

This tour was recommended to us by friends and my husband and daughter loved it. I was a bit scared of the quad bikes and making a fool of myself, but I managed ok. Our guide Ellen was extremely helpful, and very knowledgeable and we learned some interesting things about the rainforest. This tour is a great thing to do if you have a bit of spare time during your holiday.

The whole 2 hour experience was amazing from start to end. The staff were great and Ellen made us feel really comfortable for first time riders. Highly recommended as a must do when in Cairns.

It was a fun activity, the first guide was very obviously only speaking to one girl in the group directly the entire time 🙄, but thankfully we went on the drive with another guide, really nice an informative man and we even saw a cassowary in the end!

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are disappointed to read that our rainforest experience didn't quite meet your expectations. As our team has grown and some members are still in training there is room for small mistakes. However, I should point out that both guides in fact received excellent feedback and praise on the day in question even from other participants in your tour. We shall use your valuable feedback to further support our amazing staff and hope to have the opportunity to demonstrate this to you at another time. We hope the rest of your holidays in this beautiful part of Australia surpasses all your expectations!

We are sure our guide Ellen is loving all the positive feedback on her work so thank you for sharing this! Ellen loves her job and being a local and having a bubbly & friendly personality makes her the star on every tour apart from the amazing surrounds you get to see while on tour. We are very grateful that you choose our tour are part of your visit to Cairns, your support towards our small family business means a lot to us 🙏🏽

Unfortunately for us the experience was a little underwhelming. We had a large group and our guide who although was lovely had a poor command of English and at times was quite difficult to understand. ( I must mention that he was in training and was still learning all the facts about what he was trying to show us) This tour would be great for teenagers or for someone keen to try quadbiking in the rainforest but I would not recommend it if you were hoping to get a better view or insight into the flora and fauna of the region. (There was also no talk or discussion about the Cassowary despite all the signage and previous reviews which I found quite surprising) So in summary a good time filler if you can afford it and have teenage kids looking for something to do but don't put this on the top of your must do list in Kuranda.

We greatly appreciate the time you have taken to share this review with us. We must admit that during these holidays we have been overwhelmed with the amount of visitors wanting to join our tour so we are trying our best to fill each time slot as efficiently as possible but even at our maximum of 10 people, these are still small groups. As for our new staff members, as you noted, they are still in training. However, both have received praise and very positive feedback from the other people on your tour. We have to disagree however when you inaccurately describe our unique tour as being simply a ride for teenagers since we have catered for a range of visitors- from families with 6 months old babies up to 83 year olds. Our many excellent reviews are testament to this. Despite our guides being in training, they are always happy to share information and answer questions when asked. Even when they do not know the answer, management is available for support. We receive and respect your review which only encourages not only us as owners/managers but all our team to keep working towards providing visitors with one the best rainforest experiences there are not only in Kuranda but in Tropical North Queensland as proved by all our other reviews. We now know there is room for improvement but we are most definitely not at the bottom of the list of things to do in Kuranda, we have received three 5-star reviews since your posted this one.... We sincerely hope the rest of your holidays in this beautiful part of Australia are more than a 3-star experience!
