Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You do get to see a little of the rainforest on the "duck", mostly the flora. The shows and demonstrations are little on the touristy side, but entertaining nonetheless.

The Railway was closed for maintenance so we didn't do the tour we planned.

We did a half day in Rainforestation and a half day in Kuranda on our own.

We arrived at Rainforestation at 9:00 and took the 12:45 bus to Kuranda.

The 'Exclusive Access Koala Experience' is a must do. Up close and personal with the Koalas. There is limited access, so reserve your spot early.

The Army Duck trip was a good experience.

We did the 'Aussie BBQ Lunch' while we waited for the bus. There was enough variety for everyone.

The animal-exhibition is small but we enjoyed it. Staff is nice and friendly and often had time to chat. The army-duck was a very informative part of the park. Our driver and guide educated us about the rainforest with humor and vast knowledge. Did not that there were that many sharp plants. 😄 The pamagirri experience was also great. Great dance- show, and boomerang/ spearthrowing and didgeridoo- show.

Our day was packed full of fun and educational experiences. The park had our itinerary pre-planned which made transitioning to each experience smooth and effortless. We enjoyed the Army Duck tour and the animals but especially loved the Aboriginal dance performance and activities that followed. A great day out for all ages

We visited as part of our Kuranda Skyrail and train trip. The grounds are nice, the "duck" trip is a bit hokey, and the zoo bit was not extensive nor all that humane -- in my opinion.

Hi David, thank you for taking the time out to leave a review, we regret that we did not reach your expectations. In regards to the animals welfare, all of our enclosures exceed minimum requirements set by Biosecurity Queensland whose standards we have to meet in order to gain an Exhibitors License. We are also accredited by ZAA (Zoo and Aquarium Association), whose standards are higher and focused on animal welfare, also known as the 5 Domains which ensures animals are receiving the correct nutrition, environment, health, behaviour and mental state for their particular species. We take great pride in looking after the animals. We also prioritize the safety of any customer taking part in the zoom activities. We meet all the regulations with safety checks and we provide a safety briefing when you take part. We of course appreciate your feedback as we always strive for excellence.

Ever want to learn to throw a boomerang? Here you can learn how. Also see how didgeridoos are made and how to play it. See dances and spear throwing demonstrations by indigenous people. Purchase original products designed by people who work there.

We drove from Cairns just for the Army Ducx tour.

Ducx & tour guide were excellent.

30 min on a short track... felt overpriced.

Might go back and have a look at the animals but not in a hurry.
