2 Overview

Rainforestation Nature Park is eco-friendly and hosts Army Duck Rainforest Tours (which includes the Tropical Fruit Orchard), Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience and Kuranda’s largest Koala & Wildlife Park. The amphitheatre’s natural setting provides a beautiful backdrop for the Pamagirri Corroboree; a traditional dance performance depicting aspects of indigenous culture including animals, food gathering and hunting. The rainforest serves as the theatre walls whilst sounds of wildlife provide accompaniment to the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo and clapsticks.

Kuranda Rainforestation Nature Park

Rainforestation Nature Park is located in Far North Queensland, amidst the Kuranda rainforest. We are an all-weather attraction, home to the Army Duck Rainforest tours on land and water, the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience and the iconic Australian animals in the Koala & Wildlife Park.

  • Pamagirri Dreamtime Walk (30 mins)
  • Pamagirri Dance Show (30 mins)

Army Duck Rainforest Tours

Experience the tropical rainforest from a totally unique perspective aboard an amphibious World War II Army Duck or DUKW (colloquially known as Duck).

Rainforestation has twelve of these historical vehicles which hold up to 30 passengers and uses a 6 wheel drive, propeller and rudder. During this 45 minute rainforest tour, your knowledgeable Duck Captain will identify and explain fascinating plants and wildlife as you pass by before splashing into the lake for a cruise with more wildlife to be seen.

During your tour, you’ll visit the tropical fruit orchard which features over 60 different species of exotic tropical fruit trees and you’ll learn about fruits of the region and the world.


Koala & Wildlife Park

The Koala and Wildlife Park allows visitors to experience another facet of Australia.

Wander at your leisure or join a guided group with our experienced Wildlife Keepers. A series of elevated boardwalks provide close-up uninterrupted views of various Australian animals and reptiles.

Handfeed the free roaming kangaroos and wallabies in the landscaped gardens, observe the endangered cassowary, see wombats and lace monitors, and view local snakes and other reptiles.


Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience

Australia's Indigenous culture is one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world and Rainforestation Nature Park recognises the importance of preserving and sharing this unique culture.

Local indigenous Pamagirri guides welcome you to join them on a journey to discover the Dreamtime and learn about the fascinating customs and ancient traditions that are kept alive in the rainforest of Kuranda, in Tropical North Queensland.

The Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience takes approximately 1 hour which includes both the Pamagirri Aboriginal Dance Show held in the Rainforest Amphitheatre and the Dreamtime Walk conducted either before or after the show.  Extended Dreamtime Walk activities are available at an extra cost for groups to learn even more about the fascinating history of Australia’s Indigenous culture.
