Discover more with a rainforest guide Guided walks

To help ensure the safety of our volunteers and visitors the Mary Cairncross guided walk service will be temporarily suspended until Tuesday 19 April 2022.  Visitors are still welcome to visit the reserve and undertake a self-guided walk. We ask that groups continue to notify us of visit dates. We are taking tentative bookings for guided walks after 19 April but will reassess the COVID-19 situation in March and make a decision about the resumption of the guided walk service. Thank you for your understanding. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.

Rainforest guides help you to discover more on your walk through the reserve.

Pre-booked guided walks of the rainforest are available 9am – 3.30pm daily.

Walks are conducted by volunteer guides who have an intimate knowledge of the forest and can point out many sights that you might otherwise miss.

All school and other organised groups (e.g. community groups and tours) must pre-book their visit, regardless of whether they are seeking a guide. This helps to ensure all visitors have a positive experience, avoids a clash with another group and minimises overcrowding and damage to the reserve.

Protecting our forest

You will come across plenty of the animals in the reserve. We recommend not to get too close as this may provoke them. Feeding animals in the reserve is also not allowed.
