Due to the COVID-19 situation guided walks are currently unavailable. At this stage we are unsure when guided walks will resume. Please refer to our website for updates.
Pre-booked guided walks are conducted by volunteer guides with a passion for sharing the wonders of the rainforest with visitors. Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.
Bookings: To make a booking please book online here. (Six weeks notice is required). All groups must pre-book their visit regardless of whether they are seeking a guide.
Time: Walks are available between 9am – 4.30pm. We recommend allowing 1.5 hours for the walk, minimum walk time is 1 hour.
Cost: $3 / person (community groups) or $5 / person (all other groups). Please note a minimum charge of $25 applies. This fee includes entry to the Rainforest Discovery Centre. An invoice will be emailed to your group following your visit. Please advise staff prior to your visit if you intend to pay cash on the day.
Group size: To ensure a positive walk experience and to minimise impact on the reserve a maximum of 13 people are permitted per guide. A maximum of five groups are permitted on the track at one time. Larger groups will need to schedule two walk times or split the group over a couple of days.
Rainforest Discovery Centre: The centre provides a range of interactive and educational displays to suit all ages. The display themes rotate on a 5-monthly basis. A gold coin donation is requested on entry. A booked guided walk includes entry to the Discovery Centre. To ensure a positive experience for all visitors large groups are requested to stagger their visit to the Discovery Centre.
Facilities: Toilets, picnic tables and BBQs are available near the picnic grounds.
Accessibility and safety: Please note the reserve is a natural area. While relatively flat, the walk requires a reasonable level of fitness and is not classified as wheelchair accessible. Alternative walks such as the butterfly walk and glider gallery boardwalk are available. Visitors are advised to wear closed-toe shoes and protective clothing. Groups are required to advise staff on booking of any relevant medical or accessibility information. A risk assessment document is available here.

You will encounter plenty of wildlife in the reserve. Don't get too close and do not feed them. We thank you for helping to protect our native fauna by leaving them alone.
