The greatest opportunity to observe some of Australia's most unique wildlife in natural habitat occurs after nightfall. Temperature, rainfall and moonlight all have profound effects on wildlife behaviour. The most ideal conditions occur on the hottest, wettest and darkest nights. By contrast, brightly-moonlit nights in the middle of the cooler, drier periods confer significantly greater challenges.

Discover the nocturnal sights, sounds and movements of the world's oldest rainforest with the custodian of rainforest secrets (flashlights provided).

Combining day and night tours for a better understanding of the nature of the forest is highly recommended. They provide torches specially suited to wildlife spotting.

They recommend that you combine day and night walks for a better understanding of the nature of the forest.

Designed to showcase the rich diversity of natural and cultural heritage values within the prestigious Cooper Creek catchment.

Fewer than one per cent of travellers to the Cape Tribulation section of the Daintree Rainforest successfully negotiate their way through the protective barrier that conceals the old-growth Gondwanan forest. Guided, interpreted day tours reveal an extraordinary intellectual property, which amplifies the profundity of nature's masterpiece. Similarly, nocturnal tours reveal dimensions of global significance that are invariably hidden during daylight hours.

To optimise your appreciation of this ancient and complex landscape, a combination of either the two hour Grand Fan Palm Gallery Tour or the Greater Wilderness plus the Nocturnal Wildlife Experience, is highly recommended.

They provide torches that are suitable for wildlife spotting.
