In the Heart of Cape Tribulation!

Our guided night walk will reveal some of the Daintree Rainforest’s hidden creatures, from an interesting array of insects, birds, Boyd’s forest dragons, bandicoots, bats, spiders and even snakes. Little has changed in the Daintree Rainforest over the last 120 million years. Man’s impact has been minimal and it’s a landscape rich with natural history, flora and fauna. A place we’re excited to share with you. Armed with a flashlight and knowledgeable guides, we set out on Dubaji Boardwalk trails to meet some of the creatures that call the UNESCO World Heritage Daintree Rainforest home. There’s no interpretive signage or pre-recorded fact sheets, just you, a torch and your very own Naturalist Guide to introduce you to the furry, feathery and scaly locals. While we can’t guarantee what you might specifically see, we commonly see and hear Frogs, Bandicoots, Boyd’s Forest Dragons, Spiders and Bioluminescent Mushrooms. If we’re lucky, we might also see a Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo or an Amethystine Python! 

Tours depart nightly at 7pm, with an additional 9pm departures over the School Holidays. If you are self-driving, please be ready at the Reception of Ferntree Rainforest Lodge 10 minutes prior to the commencement of your tour. Bookings are essential.
