Wait-a-While Rainforest Tours Cairns FNQ

13 Castaways Close,
Kewarra Beach,

Wait-a-While Rainforest Tours is Cairns original environmental and wildlife spotlighting tour company, founded in 1982. We have obtained National Park & State Forest permits (some exclusive) to visit what we have found to be the best places to combine rainforest interpretation with the observation of the unusual wildlife of the Wet Tropics. We include the best of both worlds; several hours of daylight for interpretive rainforest walking trials, bird watching, platypus and Lumholtz's Tree Kanagaroo viewing , and after dark the fun of finding and observing nocturnal wildlife by spotlight.
