Our trip to the rainforestation nature park wouldn't have been great if not for Mitch, who was our guide for the Army duck boat tour. The park has other activities such as a koala and wildlife park and aboriginal experiences where they show you how to throw spears and boomerangs. But none of them were as exciting as the duck...

So much food best bbq lunch we have had in a long time. Didn't expect such a beautiful lunch and service, so many choices for all. Army duck was fun and informative. Pamagirri experience and dream time walk very enjoyable and informative even got to throw a boomerang. Wild life park was small but enjoyable. This was part of a... More

Visited the park and saw the animals and rode the armyduck. Felt so sorry for the animals in these small enclosures. Seen plenty of wildlife parks and this is by far the worst for animal enclosures. So many enclosures "under construction". Looks more setup and catered for the Asian tourist groups. We took a rode on the armyduck. It was... More

More like a small zoo but staff very knowledgeable. If you want a real experience, I would go to a wildlife park. If you only have an hour, I guess this would work for you.

first time to Australia, the nature habitat for its wildlife is amazing. I fed a Wallaby, actually a couple, had an Emu come close, crocodiles swimming in their pond,and many birds, beautiful birds.

This was one of my most enjoyable places to visit while I was in Australia. The Duck ride here was a lot of fun.

Our family visited the Koala & wildlife park and participated in Army duck tour in Rainforestation, and won't recommend this to anyone. The Koala & wildlife park is small, dirty and smelly. I did not expected much to a commercial zoo, but the animals were not properly cared and looked like being abused. The guide even awakened the crocodiles with... More

Visited in Feb 2017 with my 2 adult daughters, 1 who is mobility challenged and required a wheelchair. Initially we parked in the wrong section, and a lovely lady came dashing out and referred us to the upper car park, where we had wheelchair access. We arrived early afternoon, so we're very pleased to discover that you could actually buy... More

Intermittent pounding rain hid the sound of the didgeridoo and how to play it and the large group prevented all but a couple having a go with the boomerang. However, the aboriginal dance show had some great moments including the depiction of the snake and the two kangaroos fighting . Guy who took us on the duck was funny -... More

We have visited Rainforestation twice in recent weeks. The kids love every part of it. All staff are very friendly and will organise your day based on what you would like to do and the times that different experiences run. The army duck tour through the rainforest is a great adventure for the kids, the drivers are very knowledgeable and... More
