Paradise Rainforest Walk Info

Paradise Kuranda Guided Interpretive Rainforest Walk:  

Hop aboard the Kuranda Riverboat to be taken across the Barron River to a secluded rainforest clearing.  You will be taken on a guided interpretive rainforest walk through a beautiful section of ancient tropical rainforest.  The walk takes you on an established forest trail and your guide will show you many different living examples of tropical rainforest trees, vines, lianas and ferns.  Learn about the wildlife that lives in the area.  

The first rainforest tour in Far North Queensland 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! 

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 light refreshments. 

Return to the Kuranda Riverboat to be taken back to the jetty where you can laze about on the riverbank or return to the village.
