Australia's Indigenous culture is one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world and Rainforestation Nature Park recognises the importance of preserving and sharing this unique culture.

Local indigenous Pamagirri guides welcome you to join them on a journey to discover the Dreamtime and learn about the fascinating customs and ancient traditions that are kept alive in the rainforest of Kuranda, in Tropical North Queensland.

The Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience takes approximately 1 hour which includes both the Pamagirri Aboriginal Dance Show held in the Rainforest Amphitheatre and the Dreamtime Walk conducted either before or after the show.

  • Pamagirri Dance Performance
    The rainforest amphitheatre provides a beautiful backdrop for the Pamagirri Dance Performance; a traditional dance performance depicting aspects of Indigenous culture including animals, food gathering and hunting.
    The rainforest serves as the theatre walls whilst sounds of wildlife provide accompaniment to the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo and clapsticks. Be sure to watch closely – there's a surprise for the audience at the end!
    The amphitheatre is wheelchair accessible, and has a large protective canopy and tiers of comfortable wooden seats with the capacity for four hundred people. The dance programme is available in fourteen different languages.

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.
