The Centre is located on the edge of the Malanda Falls Conservation Park, and these rainforests are a great place to spot birds and other wildlife. Right on our doorstep is one of the best places in the world to see a tree-kangaroo, and though they can be difficult to spot, many visitors are rewarded with a sighting.

Guided walks

For anyone interested in learning about indigenous culture, Rainforest Dreaming Guided Walks are a must. Join local Ngadjon guide, Drew Morta, on a 45 minute walk through the Malanda Falls rainforests, and see the forest through the eyes of the local Ngadjon people. Small group sizes ensure a personal and very special indigenous experience.

Educational tours for school and other groups are also available, and we have a range of curriculum based activities for school groups. For more information contact the Centre Coordinator Caroline O’Reilly on 4096 6957 or email

Self-guided walks

Two easy walks meander through the rainforest, and maps can be picked up from the Visitor Centre. Allow half an hour to an hour for each walk, depending on your speed of walking! Early in the morning and later in the afternoon are the best times to go birding, but tree-kangaroos are just as easily seen during the day. Our monthly diary LINK) will provide some tips for what to look out for on your walk, and check out our daily nature display and sightings at the Visitor Centre.

We recommend you collect a map from the Centre, or download it here.
