Venture into the depths of the Australian rainforest on a guided evening tour that allows you to spot native wildlife in their natural habitats. Come up close to species like the platypus, wallaby, and bandicoot while learning about rainforest vegetation and the customs of Aboriginal tribes.

After being picked up at your hotel, head into the Atherton Tablelands. This fertile plateau is part of the Great Dividing Range, a mountainous region dotted with the remnants of a massive rainforest that once completely covered the area. Once you arrive, go for a walk through the forest as you keep your eyes peeled for the unusual animals found in the area. Since 80 % of wildlife in Australia are nocturnal, arriving at dusk is the perfect way to see animals in action.

Listen as your guide teaches you how the region's Aboriginal communities use native vegetation in their daily lives to make remedies and cure common ailments. This small-group tour offers an intimate experience that allows you to witness amazing animals like the elusive platypus, tree kangaroos, possums, wallaby, gliders, flying foxes, bandicoots, echidnas, snakes, frogs. Enjoy a delicious dinner before leaving the forest and heading back to Cairns.
