Carrowong Fauna Sanctuary

Kuranda, Mareeba Area

Carrowong Sanctuary is a 90 acre pristine property completely surrounded by World Heritage listed rainforest. This unlogged rainforest gives guests a unique experience to enjoy walking through a pristine area unspoilt by outside interference. They have no cages or fences, and rainforest life is free to roam.

Endangered, rare and vulnerable species here include the southern cassowary, musky rat kangaroo, red legged pademelon, northern platypus, pogonomys, antechinus, hydromys, green, striped and pygmy possums and much more. Around 130 bird species exist here together with 15 notable reptiles. Flora of course is unique with species like Macintyres Boxwood, Licuala Palms, Plalcospermum and so on.

Roads and walking tracks throughout the sanctuary have been constructed in such a way as to limit the removal of any old growth forest and fan palms, to avoid both soil erosion and impeded drainage. Their power is generated from the sun and only eco-sensitive composting toilets are used.

Their original wildlife tours continue to lead the way in rainforest eco-tourism. Carrowong's Wildlife Mountain Safari concentrates on the rare and endangered mammals of the night and A Night in the Rainforest, their nocturnal spotlighting walk, reveals the great bio-diversity of these ancient rainforests. Over 90 per cent of Australian wildlife is nocturnal, so the best time to view the native inhabitants in their natural environment is at night.

All tours are led by local wildlife specialists. A very different experience compared to the mass tour market. Their tours tend to transform guests into strong advocates for environmental protection.

Carrowong Fauna Sanctuary is privately funded, locally owned and dedicated to the rehabilitation and conservation of native rainforest wildlife. They know the rainforest, it's where they live and their original wildlife tours continue to lead the way in rainforest eco-tourism. All tours are led by local wildlife specialists.
