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.

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.
