DR1 – Grand Fan Palm Gallery Tour
The Grand Fan Palm Gallery Tour allows access into the heart of the world’s oldest surviving rainforest. Expert local guides explains its bio-diversity and complexity. Evolutionary development over 180million years has created a living museum of rare and primitive plants and animals. The beauty and structure of pristine rainforest has to be experienced from the inside. It cannot be seen from the outside or on boardwalks at the edge of roads.
Natural walking trails are suitable for small, exclusive groups. Cultural and natural heritage values are featured throughout the tour. Expert guides share their knowledge and enthusiasm gained through long-term habitation.
A cathedral-like amphitheatre of towering fan-palms stands in the heart of the forest, protected beneath the canopy of an old-growth rainforest giants. This is the prestigious Grand Fan Palm Cathedral, a place of timeless beauty and a sacred site for generations of humans.
Grand Fan Palm Gallery Tour is one of eight experiences available at Cooper Creek Wilderness that support conservation of the world’s oldest rainforest. Payments contribute to the protection and conservation of this global treasure.
