Kuranda Scenic Railway Heritage Train

Go wild on a historic WWII Army Duck as you traverse croc-infested waters and careen through the dense, ancient rainforests on a hunt for iconic Aussie wildlife in their natural habitat, then get cuddly with a koala and hand-feed a roo at the Koala and Wildlife Park.

Let the cultures and practices of the local Traditional Landowners wash over you as the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience share their Dreamtime Stories and traditional dances with you — you'll even learn how to throw a boomerang like a pro! And cool off at the Tropical Fruit Orchard with fresh, locally grown produce, juices and ice cream! We can't think of a better way to end a fabulous day in Tropical Far North Queensland's endlessly beautiful rainforests.

Army Duck Tour Through Rainforestation Nature Park

Buckle up for a rocky rainforest adventure on the historic Army Duck — an amphibious vehicle that can traverse swampy wetlands and bumpy rainforest floors. Listen to your expert guide as they point out crocodiles, snakes, and turtles, as well as a stunning array of tropical floral gems: ferns, orchids, strangler figs and stinging trees.

Koala and Wildlife Park

After your crash course in all things wild on the Army Duck tour, get a little more intimate with our Aussie icons. Cuddle a koala, hand-feed a kangaroo, and even catch a glimpse of the endangered cassowary and Lumholtz tree kangaroo! These guys also have the only Tasmanian devils in Far North Queensland, so be sure to stop off and say hello! Don't get too close though, their bite is definitely worse than their bark. You can also see dingoes and score front-row seats to a live croc feeding.
