Park in Kuranda

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 (one way/return adult $7.50/12.50, 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.
