Cairns Kuranda Rainforestation Nature Park - Army Duck Tour and Koala & Wildlife Park


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

  • Guided Wildlife Park Tour (30 mins)
  • Army Duck Tours (45 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 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.

The star attraction of the Wildlife Park is "Jack the Ripper", a 5 metre saltwater crocodile weighing at 650kgs with a reputation of killing 12 of his girlfriends in times gone by. Jack is kept in his own enclosure with an elevated platform perfect for your safe and close-up viewing.

On the other side of Jack is the fresh water enclosure where a bask of juvenile crocodiles, turtles and lizards sun themselves and casually swim around.
