  • Access to the rainforest reserve is by minor roads from the A30, A38 and B3254. The car park is near Draynes Bridge, at a quarter of a mile north of the site.
  • Temperature at the Newquay rainforest exhibit is humid to ensure a more natural environment for the animals, so be sure to dress accordingly.
  • To capture Golitha Falls at their most spectacular you should try to visit after heavy rain on the moors.
