Loved that the tour picks up from your hotel and drops back off. You'll need to have an early dinner as they pick up around 5:30-6:00pm and then drop you back around 10pm. Seems like a lot of time but the experience went super fast! Very knowledgeable tour guide gave us heaps of fun facts and jokes along the way. About a 45 minute drive from city center into the rainforest.

Beautiful forest and amazing place to spend your evening in middle of beautiful sub-tropical rain forest. If you love the wild, you will live it here. I come from a country with dense rain forest, so for people travelling from Africa or India, this will be a simple experience

A well planned day with the right amount of stops and time spent at each! It was beautiful. Bryan was a fantastic tour guide who even helped us spot the rare black footed wallabies! I really enjoyed the day.

It was a very nice experience. The tour, refreshments and rainforest walk which ended near the water fall was amazing.

It was a nice trip. The tour guide Duff made it more enjoyable by sharing his knowledge and jokes.
