Wait-a-While Rainforest Tours – Nocturnal Rainforest Wildlife Tour

Evening

This is the best tour for experiencing a great range of native Australian tropical wildlife both during the daytime and night in its natural habitat including the elusive platypus and rare Tree Kangaroo – ‘an unforgettable natural experience’.

Starting around 2pm in the afternoon, this small group tour (maximum 11) includes afternoon tea and dinner. After being picked up at your hotel/accommodation, you head inland and up to the Atherton Tablelands via the Gilles Highway south of Cairns. You’ll visit the scenic Crater Lakes and the magnificent strangler fig trees with your experienced naturalist guide pointing out wildlife and the many exotic plants and trees. Afternoon Tea is at the beautiful Lake Barrine. Come dusk and you visit their exclusive platypus viewing area (they have a 90 per cent plus success rate) then have dinner at a local country restaurant on the Tablelands.

They venture up to the Atherton Tablelands where there is a much greater variety of wildlife such as possums, platypus, birds, snakes, frogs, kangaroos (big/small or rare tree kangaroos) and flying foxes. Their wonderful naturalist guides delight all with their enthusiasm.

The thrill of being deep in the rainforest at night is especially an experience not to be missed.
