The Kuranda Riverboat operates interpretive river cruises and guided rainforest walks. Enjoy a memorable experience discovering Kuranda’s rainforest flora, fauna and history. Cruise the tranquil waters of the World's most ancient tropical rainforest on a 45 minute tour on the Barron River in Kuranda. There is a host of wildlife on the river and you may see freshwater crocodiles, snakes, fish, turtles, water dragons and tropical birds. Your tour guide will share his knowledge of the area with you while you relax and take in the beautiful rainforest and take advantage of many photographic opportunities. To take part in one of their guided rainforest walks you will hop aboard the Kuranda Riverboat and sail across the river to a secluded rainforest clearing where you will be taken on a guided interpretive walk through a section of beautiful tropical rainforest. Sometimes cassowaries are spotted in the rainforest too. Light refreshments are served in our outdoor rainforest tea room at the end of the walk. Talk to them about group bookings and special tours outside of their normal tour times, as well as small weddings and other special occasions. Book online via their website or pay cash only on the boat.
