We were all happy finding the bat reach, but it looks like we picked the "wrong day". The doors remained closed, and somebody called out they didn't open the day, they were too busy taking care of the animals. While very understandable (I guess primarily...More

Amazing time getting very close to the bats and learning all about how they're keeping the rain forest alive! This is an awesome find when walking around Kuranda. Great cause! Definitely a must see.

I learned about this on TripAdvisor and am so glad I did. It seems like thousands of people are in Kuranda after getting off the train or gondola, but we were the only 2 at Batreach when we arrived. Please come with cash. It's by...More

Is just down the track on the rainforest walking trail. They rescue flying foxes and help to rehabilitate the animals. Also provide some education on the animals and how they play a important part in the rainforest.

It was so beautiful to learn from the very caring and informed volunteer about how important bats are to our ecosystem. The bats were so cute and lovely. Well worth the visit

We were amazed bij the intelligence of these lovely animals. Not scary as we would aspect.. The volenteers who are taking care of the flying foxes doing an awesome job. We recommend everybody to visit the batreach to learn more about flying foxes.

I went to Kuranda to see the birds and butterflies but found the Bat Reach to most interesting. It was so informative and interesting I didn't want to leave. I would go back to Kuranda again just to see more of Bat Reach.

Thanks for educating me. Bats are a keystone species in trouble! This place was the best thing at Kuranda national park. They don't charge a fee. A little hard to find small signs small place run by volunteers. Number 1 in my books.
