Paradise Kuranda Guided Rainforest Walk
Join us for a Paradise Kuranda Guided Rainforest Walk, accessible only via the Kuranda Riverboat. You will be taken across the Barron River on the Kuranda Riverboat to a secluded rainforest clearing. The guided rainforest walk takes you through a beautiful section of ancient tropical rainforest on an established forest trail. Your guide will show you many examples of tropical rainforest trees, vines, lianas and ferns and speak about the wildlife that lives in the area and the history of the first rainforest tour in Far North Queensland that used this same trail in the 1920s. In those days people would be rowed across the river in all their finery in order to marvel at the beauty of the rainforest. Sometimes you may also be lucky enough to see a cassowary during the walk.
At the end of the guided tour, and within the maintained clearing, there is a natural spring and a delightful area where you will be served tea or coffee and cake. Then return to the Kuranda Riverboat to be taken back to the jetty where you can either return to the village or book yourself onto a Kuranda Riverboat Cruise, which will take you down the Barron River to see freshwater fish and turtles and hopefully freshwater crocodiles.
