Our visit was during the rainy season, and this is rainforest, so we got wet. Definitely worth wearing suitable clothing. A good guide is essential - we went with Newton George who was exceptional. He could spot small birds hidden in the canopy when we...More

Had a fabulous walk - guided by Junior Thomas from Unique Tours. Was a quiet time - I wouldn't recommend if your visit clashed with cruise trip visits! Really enjoyed the serenity, birdlife and awe inspiring bamboo.

Walked some of the Gillian trail in a group. It's like travelling to prehistoric times and there's plenty of wildlife to see and hear along the way. Definitely recommend leaving the road and walking one of the trails.

We asked Fitzroy to take us on a guided walk in the Main Ridge Forest, and to the Twin River Falls. He did exactly what we asked - and he was knowledgeable, charming and patient when we sometimes struggled to see small birds. We had...More

We had a great visit to the rainforest and our guide Darlington was a mine of information. He clearly is very passionate about preserving the rainforest for the future.
