Koala and Wildlife Park: The award-winning Rainforestation Nature Park is a 100 acre (40-hectare) property located in the middle of Kuranda’s World Heritage Rainforest. The locally owned and operated park offers three unique experiences to visitors as a self-drive option.
The Koala & Wildlife Park has a plethora of native Australian species to see including koalas, dingoes, lizards, snakes and the cassowary. Rainforestation is the only wildlife park in North Queensland to have Tasmanian Devils – make sure you check them out! There is also a barramundi lake where you can see the region’s most famous (and tastiest) fish. They grow up to 2 meters in length and can weigh up to 60kg!
Don’t miss Jack the Ripper, one of the largest crocodiles in captivity. Coming in at over 5 meters in length and weighing almost a tone, you can view him from the safety of our elevated boardwalks. Explore the park at your own pace and hand feed kangaroos and wallabies as they roam freely through the park, or join one of our experienced Wildlife Keepers on a guided tour. For that extra souvenir experience, you can also get your photo taken with a cuddly koala or even a small crocodile if you dare!(extra cost).
Duration: 30 minutes.
Start/opening time: 9am. Guided tour times: 9:30am, 11:30am, 12:30am, 1:30pm and 3pm.
