Attraction Tourism Center

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 as you glide just metres above the pristine rainforest 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 long before dinosaurs roamed the earth and whose descendants can still be seen in the rainforest today. 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 for you the secrets of this mystical landscape whose prehistoric ancestry is some 45 million years older than the Amazon. Discover more via the CSIRO Rainforest Interpretation Centre at Barron Falls Station. Marvel at the rugged beauty of the Barron Gorge and Falls that are best enjoyed from any of the three lookouts, 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.
