Welcome!

The Rainforest School is located at Dundee Park, a beautiful location in the hinterlands of Mission Beach. Our school house is a homely Queenslander surrounded by lush rainforest. We are a boutique school that is small by design.

We are inspired by Montessori, Steiner and Nature Play philosophies. Our school follows the Australian National Curriculum. We deliver an educational program which uses a balanced range of explicit, hands-on and real-life learning.
