Owner description: Situated in the midst of World Heritage Rainforest in Kuranda, the award-winning Rainforestation Nature Park with three unique experiences. Board a World War II Army Duck for a tour on both land and water through the rainforest. Watch the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience with traditional dance performances and Dreamtime Walk with boomerang throwing, spear throwing and didgeridoo playing. Visit our iconic Australian animals in the Koala & Wildlife Park, now home to the endangered Tasmanian Devil species. Hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies and also have your photo taken cuddling a Koala.

“A must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 weeks ago via mobile

Best experience ever. My husband And I are huge animal lovers and enjoy very much visiting santuaries and or locations where are different kind of aminals. This particular place withholds a very special place in our hearts. Pretty much all Staff is very friendly with animals and customers. The surroundings are clean and customer can interact with several beautiful creatures. I can not wait to visit Rainforestation again. Miss you guys!

“Cable car was good but not so much to do otherwise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2017

We enjoyed the cable car going up. However there is not so much to do for us up on Kuranda. Mainly shops which not what we are interested. The rest you have to pay extra to go into.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, however, it sounds like your review is for Kuranda Village, not for Rainforestation Nature Park, which is located a few minutes from the village, with a regular shuttle bus available to transport you there. Situated in the midst of World Heritage Rainforest, Rainforestation has three unique experiences: Army Duck Rainforest tours on land and water, the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience with dance performance and Dreamtime Walk with boomerang throwing, spear throwing and didgeridoo playing, and iconic Australian animals in the Koala & Wildlife Park.

It’s a shame you missed the opportunity to visit us, if you’re ever in the region again we hope that you would consider coming to Rainforestation for these great experiences.

“Good and not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2017 via mobile

We visited here as part of Kuranda rail package tour. Indigenous tour/display very good, animal display's not bad, however all geared for overseas market. We did think people doing the photo with koala thing was terrible, poor old koala being jerked and tugged around for a 10 second photo shoot with overseas tourists, very poor decision from operators, probably should not be done as a tourist activity. Duck tour well not good here either had 4 or 5 ducks bumper to bumper, even passing each other at one point to shovel tourists through. Maybe should have gone here not as part of package. Have done alot of tours over the years, so can only say this tour was way over booked, extremely rushed, obviously staff going through the motions shifting people from one place to the next, hurry hurry, come on come on, not agood way to sell a tourist product or destination as this cost quite a reasonable amount of money to see.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Rainforestation. We’re sorry to hear you were disappointed by your visit. Certainly when visiting during the peak tourism season, such as school holidays, Rainforestation can be quite busy, but this is actually no different to other Kuranda attractions, such as Skyrail, Kuranda Scenic Railway, or even Kuranda Village itself.

With regards to our koala photos, we adhere to the regulations set by Biosecurity Queensland requiring that koalas are only held for a maximum of 30 minutes per day, and that they must have every third day off to rest. This does limit the amount of time that koalas can be held for as part of the photo experience. We appreciate your concern for the welfare of our koalas, but I can assure you that our keepers are passionate experts in looking after them, and take the utmost care to ensure that they live happy and content lives.

We do pride ourselves in providing excellent customer service, and we usually receive positive feedback that our staff are friendly and helpful, so I’m sorry to hear you felt they were going through the motions and will address this for staff to be aware of this, particularly on busy days.
