What You Can Expect

Kuranda Rainforest Night Adventure Tour by Hummer

Rock wallabies

Your tour starts with evening pickup in Cairns or the Northern Beaches by coach for the drive into the rugged bushland just outside Kuranda. When you arrive at the outdoor campfire, enjoy a barbecue that includes kangaroo and crocodile sausage, toasted marshmallows and traditional Australian billy-tea. While you relax underneath a mango tree, soak up the outback atmosphere and gaze at the stars.

After eating, hop into your American military Hummer for your 4WD adventure across a creek and into the rainforest. Driven by your guide, the all-terrain high-performance vehicle has no problem navigating off-road trails and features a spotlight to help you catch sight of wildlife that roam the forest after dark. Traverse the Atherton Tablelands to Granite Gorge, and stop to check out curious rock-wallabies, who will eat right out of your hands (food is provided). Keep your eyes open for a lucky sighting of a mama wallaby with a small joey (baby) in her pouch.

Watch for nocturnal birds, and catch a glimpse of the large, animal-shaped, volcano-formed boulders that dot the savannah before your tour ends with the drive back to your hotel for drop-off.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2016

Well the night Hummer tour was not what I thought is would be. Not at all what was described in the online description. Hummer was old and almost didn't start, the tour was in a pasture in some guys back yard, where we went around the same trail like 3 to 4 times and then came back to his backyard, not too impressed! On a better note the highlight was going and getting to feed the wallabies, I did get the impression like we weren't supposed to be there though, maybe it was just because it was kind of late and the place is in a campground.
