WHAT TO EXPECT
Explore a secluded estate surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest with a friendly tour guide while sitting comfortably in a Can-Am Off-Road buggy. This scenic tour takes a leisurely pace through the rainforest. It features regular stops to talk and learn about the environment around you, as well as local history, fruit tasting when in season, and more.
Old timber trails lead the way into the heart of the rainforest where you will discover some of the oldest, tallest and most distinctive flora. Several antique structures will give you an insight into the pioneer history of North Queensland. Plus, an orchard with more than 600 exotic fruit trees will remind you of nature’s goodness and richness with tasting available when in season.
The chance to encounter a cassowary will make this the most unforgettable journey! The estate is privileged to be home to this elusive bird, and though there's no guarantee of cassowary sightings, there is an 80% chance to encounter one of these amazing looking animals in one of the rainforest tours.
Every tour is a small-group, with a maximum of 5 seats in each buggy, so you get an in-depth, personalised experience. Feel free to ask your friendly guide any questions you have throughout the journey – they'll be more than happy to answer them!
Finally, you can choose to take the Skyrail (additional cost) to reach the Barron FallsStation, where your tour guide will meet you. It's the perfect addition to a day a Kuranda day trip. Alternatively, you can make the drive to the destination on the Kennedy Highway, or request a free transfer from Kuranda Village.
