You'll need a full day to properly explore this enormous complex, divided into three sections: a koala and wildlife park, the interactive Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience and a river and rainforest tour aboard the amphibious Army Duck boat/truck.

The park is 3km east of Kuranda. Shuttles (adult one way/return $7/12, child $3.50/6) run every half hour between the park and Kuranda village.

Rainforestation is included in the Capta 4 Park Pass (www.capta.com.au), which offers discounted entry to four Far North Queensland attractions.
