Our History

woodwardfamilyThe Woodward Family CaPTA Group (CaPTA) was founded by Charles and Pip Woodward who opened Rainforestation Nature Park in 1976 which is located in Kuranda. Charles and Pip pioneered rainforest tourism with Army Duck Tours and later introduced the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience and Koala & Wildlife Park.

In 1981, Charles and Pip started Tropic Wings Coach Tours and then expanded significantly during the new millennium adding Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome and Jungle Tours & Trekking to become the CaPTA Group.  Their three sons, Michael, Ben and Peter are all now actively involved in the business.

CaPTA has also established the Careers Training Centre, a Registered Training Organisation specialising in tourism and indigenous training and more recently into Yutong coach sales, coach maintenance, service and parts through ABC Sales & Maintenance.
