Army Duck was a novel tour to go on, and a bit cheaper too if you self-drive as it's not too far from Cairns city centre. Tour guide provided lots of good information and interaction on the round trip.

Learned aboriginal culture through traditional dance performance depicting animals, hunting and food gathering. Dances such as Gurrunga (warning dance); Pamagirri (Snake); Bundara (Casowary) and Marloo (Kangaroo). Great day out Rainforestation.

Hi there. We have customer parking in two locations - at the front of the property next to the lake just past the coach parking area, and at the back of the property. Both areas are signposted and easy to find.
