The Rainforest area is the entrance into Dreamworld Corroboree. This area is home to many rainforest species including the Cassowary and Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroos. A boardwalk decorated with colourful totems and rock art leads guests to a 10,000 year old 'midden'. At the end of the walk, guests will find our traditional weapons demonstration area where everyone can try their hand at age-old skills of survival. The Rainforest landscape is home to Uncle Ernie of the Mamu Ngadjon jii Mob from the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland.
The Woodlands is the natural home of the koala. Walking into this area guests can visit Dreamworld's Corroboree Theatre, the ‘humpy’ or join the Yarning Circle where Indigenous Interpretation Officers demonstrate music and fire making. Guests can connect with koalas, baby crocs and snakes in this area and walk among free roaming kangaroos. Explore the diversity of Aboriginal culture through carved totems of the Kamilaroi Mob, Uncle Marshall Bell.
One of the most forbidding ecosystems in Australia is the arid outback landscape. Guests will discover bilbies, red kangaroos, emus, reptiles and dingoes.
The Wetlands is home to the Torres Strait Islander Mob and features a boardwalk over several water enclosures with freshwater crocodiles, turtles, wetland birds and Dreamworld’s famous saltwater crocs, Goliath and Matilda. Guests can watch the Croc Feeding Presentation or have a bite to eat themselves as traditional bush tucker samples are offered at Kai-Kai Café. The café is proudly supported by the Achieving Results Through Indigenous Education (ARTIE) Academy in honour of Rugby League legend, Arthur Beetson. Next to the railway station, guests will find Bunya Traders where they can pick-up Dreamworld Corroboree merchandise and authentic Aboriginal artefacts.
