Tropical Forest Demonstration

Have you noticed it's humid in our forest? Ever wondered how much rain falls in a rainforest?

Experience rainy season in Tūhura's Tropical Forest! Get set to get wet, and experience how a rainforest and its inhabitants adapt to the rain. We're opening the heavens to saturate our forest with the most crucial compound in forming life – water!

With more rainy days than fine, learn how species have gained different abilities to cope with this watery environment, and witness a small selection of the many millions of creatures that flourish in a rainforest.

2.30pm daily, 28 September – 13 October
Included with your Tūhura admission
