Departs Cairns: 2:00pm
Returns Cairns: 10:30pm

Tour starts in the southern suburbs of Cairns where a mob of Agile Wallaby’s lives within the city.

Approximately 80% of Australian animals are nocturnal or active at night, so the rainforest is a hive of activity after dark.

On clear nights, the minimal light pollution also allows star spotters to enjoy taking in the Southern Cross and Milky Way.

The tour ends in Cairns at around 2200 (2300 for Northern Beaches) where you will be dropped off at your hotel or other accommodation.

About Wait a While Rainforest Tours

Rainforest Spotlighting Tours Cairns Rainforest & Wildlife Tours

Wait-a-While Rainforest Spotlighting Tours Cairns offer Rainforest & Wildlife Tours in the Cairns region. Visiting the World Heritage Listed National Parks from Cairns, we have been hosting small personal wildlife spotting and nocturnal spotlighting tours into the world’s oldest continuously surviving rainforest near Cairns for more than 30 years.

With an impressive success rate, we take our guests to the Atherton Tablelands to observe animals, such as the elusive platypus and tree kangaroo, in their natural habitat.

Cairns is a major tourist destination with thousands of visitors coming here each year to experience the Great Barrier Reef and yet relatively few discover the Cairns Tablelands (sometimes known as the Atherton Tablelands).

The Tablelands are within easy reach of Cairns offering a shorter drive time than Daintree rainforest tours and greater wildlife spotting opportunities.

The best time of day to spot wildlife in Australia is at dusk through to nighttime so our tours depart in the early afternoon. As the rainforest comes alive at night (80% of animals in Australia are nocturnal or more active at night), our spotlights enable us to capture activity up in the canopy.

Experiencing the  tropical rainforest at night is something you will remember, especially with an informative guide to help you understand this magnificent wildlife environment. We strive to offer the best Rainforest Tours in Cairns.
