Very well organised but possibly a little rushed. My highlight was feeding a kangaroo with her joey in her pouch! The duck tour was also fascinating. Buffet lunch was nice.

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.

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...

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....

Or couples. Lots of info about various flora in the rain forest. Also you may have your photo taken, for a price, holding a Kola, or a small croc. They also have 'Roos that you may feed; watch cockatoos; see a Wombat, etc. they also provide a DUCK ride on land and water. Tour guides are very knowledgable and relate... More

We have been to Rainforestation many times as we are locals. We are never disappointed and always have an enjoyable day. The staff are so friendly and lovely. The kids enjoy the ride on the army duck, throwing a boomerang and the animals. We had a lovely buffet lunch. A great day, well worth the money.

We took Skyrail up to Kuranda and took the Rainforestation tour. It was way too rushed for me. They had you on a schedule, so you got to see the aminals, take the duck boat tour and see the aboriginal things...but you didn't have time on your own at the facility. This was our least favorite thing we did on... More
