Join us for a guided interpretive rainforest walk accessible via the Kuranda Riverboat!
Enjoy a guided interpretive rainforest walk through a beautiful 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.
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 Barron River. During this calm water cruise you will see fish, turtles, birds and hopefully and freshwater crocodiles.
Book online or pay cash ONLY on the Kuranda Riverboat.
