We did not really know what to expect having never walked through a rainforest at night however, we were very pleased with the walk. The guide was very knowledgable about the forest and it was especially interesting to stand in the pitch black and listen to the rainforest. The walk was long enough to have a chance to see some...

If you stay at any lodge in the forest, you can see much more animals around you. The tour focuses on the explanation about rainforest mostly plants. Too much explanation and very little experiences. Not necessarily the night tour. All we could see are small lizard, eel (my wife found it), frog, tiny glowfly, and cockroach. 日本から参加しました。夜行性の鳥や動物が見られるかと期待しましたが、ほとんど動物は見られませんでした。森の中のロッジに泊まれば、部屋の周辺の方がいろんなものが見られます。熱帯雨林の説明を延々とする感じで、忍耐が要求されるツアーです。

I decided to do this activity as there isn't much else to do in Cape Trib. The group was only me, 2 girls, and the guide. I had a fantastic time, on a good 2 hour walk or so. Saw quite a lot of interesting things: spiders, lizards, hollow trees, glowing logs, fireflys. You've got to remember it is in... More

I went on this tour without expectations and was pleasantly surprised by an awesome experience. Our guide for the evening was Angie (a professional biologist from Germany who has lived in the Daintree for the last 5 years). From the outset Angie told us that it would be hit and miss if we saw animals, but I was hoping we... More

We went to this activity knowing that it was going to be difficult to see any big animal as in Cape Tribulation is quite hard to really find a Cassuary or a Tree Kangaroo. Anyway we finally saw a snake (the guide was extremely excited), a spider, ants and shining fungus. It could be OK because of the noises of... More

The highlights of this walk were not so much the nocturnal creatures seen by torchlight but the senses that came alive once the torches were out, including seeing luminescent fungi on the bark of fallen logs. Our guide was Julie, the young American, who was enthusiastic and knowledgable about the rainforest. Much of what she pointed out could have been... More

I booked this night walk as a package with Jungle Surfing for my family. We were all very excited as we'd been told we were likely to have 'Ollie' who apparently has an excellent knowledge of the forest. Unfortunately I knew this experience wasn't going to live up to expectations when our guide turned out to be a very young... More

To be honest I did not read the below reviews but booked this walk as part of a package attached to the jungle surfing (zip-lining) offered by the same company. Having only average expectations, I was absolutely blown away by this. The success of this excursion hinged heavily on our exceptional guide - Ollie. Regaling us with his day's exploits... More

Although the guide tried very hard to keep the large group entertained, there really wasn't anything to see except an impressive spider at the very start of the walk. If you are looking for expert insight into the nocturnal attractions of the Daintree rainforest, then you should look elsewhere.

This walk was more suited as a day tour then a night one. Learned lots on plants and trees but barely anything on the nocturnal species of the area !! Even if there wasn't anything to see at least talk about what's out there instead of the greenery. Any chance we had of seeing anything vanished after the guide starting... More
