Experience Aboriginal culture, wildlife and an amphibious vehicle ride at the Rainforestation Nature Park, set in 100 acres of UNESCO World Heritage Site rain forest. This eco-friendly park enables you to experience the rain forest from many different perspectives.

Learn about Aboriginal culture on the Dreamtime Walk and see the Pamagirri Dancers perform traditional song and dance in the Rainforest Amphitheatre. The Dreamtime Walk, along the Rainbow Serpent walkway, takes you through Aboriginal traditions, myths, and legends. Watch spear throwing and learn how to throw a boomerang or play the didgeridoo.

Discover the magic of the rain forest from aboard a World War II amphibious army duck as your guide explains the mysteries of the ancient ferns and trees. Once on board, you'll travel around the 90-acre property along jungle tracks before the duck splashes into the lake and cruises through the jungle close to the water's edge.

See fascinating plants and wildlife as turtles, fish and eels swim up close to the vessel.

Strolling the covered boardwalks around the park, you'll have excellent views of unique Australian animals in the Koala & Wildlife Park.

Feed the kangaroos, cuddle a koala or a small crocodile (at your own expense), see wombats and meet Jack -- a large saltwater crocodile -- as well as many other creatures native to Australia.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent. Tour does not operate on holidays.
