From elevated walkways through the trees or aboard an all-terrain, amphibious World War II Army Duck, you can explore the 404,686 sq m (100 acres) of World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest at Rainforestation Nature Park. Knowledgeable guides point out and explain the abundance of native plants and animals, including over 40 varieties of exotic fruits, as well as koalas, crocodiles, snakes, and dingoes. The park also works to support and preserve Australia’s indigenous culture. After watching a corroboree--a traditional dance--performance by local Aborigines, you can try your hand at throwing a boomerang or playing the didgeridoo.

Unique experience. Pros: Aboriginal show, boomerang experience, able to get close to animals. Cons: not a lot of animals. Jungle tour: very slow. Often stopped for long periods in sun. I learned some interesting stuff, but didn't see hardly anything of note.
A nice touristy place to visit. You don't actually get to walk through the rain forest but the duck boat ride is a neat way to get close. Actually petted kangaroos (for free) and could pay to build a koala). We also enjoyed the cultural dance and demonstrations of the boomerang and the musical instrument (can't remember the name of it). Overall a very nice day that ended with the gondola Skyrail
