About Jungle Adventures Night Walks



Jungle Adventures Nightwalks take small groups deep into the ancient forest to experience the nocturnal world.   As the sun sets over the trees, the animals stir and the forest comes to life.   It’s a singing, bustling world, far removed from man’s dominance over the earth, and the Jungle Adventures Nightwalk introduce you to a weird and wonderful cast of characters who live together to create this grand circle of life.

Tour Info:

Located on a private reserve in Cape Tribulation, approximately 2.5 hours drive north of Cairns. The 45 acre property borders the Daintree Cape Tribulation National Park and contains spectacular rainforest, creeks and views of the ocean and Great Barrier Reef. 

With over 50% of all species endemic to this continent found in our region, we are blessed with a wide variety of wildlife. In addition to frequent sightings of sleeping birds and rainforest dragons, the nocturnal tours regularly encounter forest mammals including bats and possums, many species of spiders and insects plus beautiful snakes including amethystine and carpet pythons and brown tree snakes. 

Ian Samuels, Head Interpretive Guide & Jungle Surfing Supervisor, discovered the true power of nature at a very young age after putting a frog in his mother’s apron. This lead on to a Bachelor of Biological Sciences degree which in turn lead to his “Mad Scientist” nightwalks. Although Ian’s knowledge of the Daintree Rainforest is encyclopaedic, he has never learned to grow up, and believes a smile is the best gift you can give.

Jungle Adventures Night Walks Reviews



Best way to see night wildlife. I would recommend doing this walk as it’s the best chance you’ll have to find some wildlife. We saw a little frog, a dragon on a tree, a snake in the trees and some huge spiders and moths. It’s a slow 1-2km walk, but this walk includes walking and climbing down some steep areas and walking through rivers.



Absolutely incredible......must see! This was beyond our expectations! It was truly one of the high lights of our trip to Cape Tribulation. Ian, our guide, showed off his knowledge and passion for the flora and fauna of this area with a great light hearted walk. We felt safe and totally captivated on this experience not to missed. We left in awe!
