Adult: ONLY $27
Children (5-15 yrs old): ONLY $13.5

Join us for a guided interpretive rainforest walk accessible only via the Kuranda Riverboat. You will be taken across the Barron River on the Kuranda Riverboat to a secluded rainforest clearing. You will go on a guided interpretive rainforest walk through a beatuiful section of ancient tropical rainforest. The walk takes you on an established forest trail and your guide will show you many examples of tropical rainforest trees, vines, lianas and ferns and speak about the wildlife that lives in the area and the history of the first rainforest tour in Far North Queensland that used this same trail in the 1920s.

In those days people would be rowed across the river in all their finery in order to marvel at the beauty of the rainforest! Sometimes you may also be lucky enough to see a cassowary.

At the end of the guided tour, and within the maintained clearing, there is a natural spring and a delightful area where you will be served tea/coffee and cake.

Return to the Kuranda Riverboat to be taken back to the jetty where you can either return to the village or book yourself onto a Kuranda Riverboat Cruise, which will take you down the river to feed fish and turtles and see freshwater crocodiles.

“Relaxing, peaceful and really interesting!” Have been lucky enough to have done this trip a couple of times. The guided tour is great. Have also been lucky enough to be invited on several functions on the riverboat. So unique... champers and cheese platters at sunset. Recommend if you have an event coming up. Nothing quiet like it!
