Had a fabulous walk - guided by Junior Thomas from Unique Tours. Was a quiet time - I wouldn't recommend if your visit clashed with cruise trip visits! Really enjoyed the serenity, birdlife and awe inspiring bamboo.

Walked some of the Gillian trail in a group. It's like travelling to prehistoric times and there's plenty of wildlife to see and hear along the way. Definitely recommend leaving the road and walking one of the trails.

We had a great visit to the rainforest and our guide Darlington was a mine of information. He clearly is very passionate about preserving the rainforest for the future.
