Daintree Tourism News

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

Originally from Malaysia and Sumatra, Rambutans, also known as Hairy Lychees, are vivid red or variegated coloured fruit covered in soft spines that grow in large clusters on trees. The flesh is usually transparent or white in colour and contains one seed and the sweet flesh has a refreshing mild acid flavour.

Look for a firm brightly-coloured fruit that shows no signs of bruising. The spines should be firm, without being brittle. Dehydration and rough handling will result in blackened spines, however the fruit is generally fine to eat. Fresh fruit can be refrigerated wrapped in plastic for five to seven days and may be kept at room temperatures for two or three days.

Best eaten fresh in fruit salads, Rambutans can be served with ice-cream or made into sorbets, jams, salads, cheese or meat platters. They can also be used as an addition to either sweet or savoury kebabs or simply served fresh to follow savoury dishes.

Rambutans grow predominantly in the wet tropics, although the Cooktown region starts the season earlier, the main area is in the Tully region south of Innisfail. Rambutans are in season in February.

Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours crowned an amazing year by winning the Queensland Tourism Award for Tourist Attractions at the 2008 awards held at the Brisbane Exhibition & Conference Centre on Friday 14th November. The award, which was open to attractions of state or territory importance which significantly contribute to the tourism experience within their region, saw a wide variety of attractions named as finalists in a fiercely competitive category. Sheena Walshaw, General Manager of Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours, said “We’re overwhelmed to have won the award in such an impressive field, and we’re especially delighted to be recognized for our contribution to attracting visitors to the Daintree, which we’re passionate about.”

Jungle Surfing has been operating for five years, has taken over 50,000 people flying from tree to tree through the rainforest on flying fox ziplines, and this year opened a new harnessing centre and doubled tour departures to eight tours a day. “Jungle Surfing’s a tour with something for everyone and I think that’s the secret of our success.” said Ms Walshaw. “It’s a combination of exhilaration and education, eco-experience and adventure tour, and anyone from three to 103 can give it a go. It’s a real thrill sharing this spectacular rainforest in such a novel way, and everyone goes away with a smile on their face.”

The eight finalists in the Tourist Attractions category were Capricorn Caves, Outback at Isa, The Workshops Rail Museum, Undara Experience, Reef HQ Aquarium, Fantasea Adventure Cruising – Reefworld, The Station Store & Sunshine Castle. Jungle Surfing was also named as a finalist in the Steve Irwin Ecotourism and the Adventure Tourism categories.

Jungle Surfing’s other successes this year include winning two Tropical North Queensland Tourism Awards for Ecotourism and Adventure Tourism, and being named a finalist in the 2008 Telstra Business Awards.

Jungle Surfing will now go on to represent Queensland at the Australian Tourism Awards in Melbourne in early 2009.
