Embark on a fascinating journey of discovery over and through the oldest continually surviving tropical rainforest on earth.

Enjoy a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage listed tropical rainforest, gliding just metres above the pristine canopy before descending to explore the forest floor at the Red Peak and Barron Falls Rainforest Stations.

Relax as you become immersed in the sights, sounds, smells and tranquillity of one of the most botanically fascinating areas on earth.

Learn about ancient plants and animals that existed before dinosaurs roamed the earth. The birthplace of song birds, kangaroos and some of the world’s first flowering plants, this fascinating living museum is like a window back in time.

Complimentary ranger-guided boardwalk tours, interpretive signage and scenic lookouts at Red Peak Station unlock the secrets of this mystical landscape whose prehistoric ancestry is some 75 million years older than the Amazon.

Discover more via the CSIRO Rainforest Interpretation Centre at Barron Falls Station. Marvel at the Barron Gorge and Falls and learn more about the area’s pioneering past at the engaging historical display.

Easily accessible from Cairns city, it’s time to encounter, discover and immerse yourself in what is arguably The World’s Most Beautiful Rainforest Experience.
