Tropical and Far North Queensland Birding Tour 2019
29 July 2019 - 6 August 2019
Tropical & Far North Queensland (the area around Cairns and all the way up the Cape York Peninsula) is without doubt one of Australia’s top birding destinations. A variety of tropical habitats including rainforests, palm-fringed beaches, mangrove-lined mudflats, tropical savannahs and cool mountain ranges result in a bird diversity unparalleled elsewhere in the country. During this tour we start and finish in Cairns, where we aim to find all local specialties including the 13 endemic birds of the Cairns region, plus many other great rainforest, woodland, wetland and grasslands inhabitants. We’ll look for birds such as Cassowary, Golden Bowerbird, Blue-faced Parrot-finch, Double-eyed Fig-parrot, Lovely Fairy-wren, Tooth-billed Bowerbird, Bridled Honeyeater, Yellow-breasted Boatbill, Spectacled and Black-faced Monarch, Spotted Catbird, Victoria’s Riflebird, Mountain Thornbill, Pale Yellow and Grey-headed Robin, Papuan Frogmouth, Sooty Owl and many more. We’ll also look for mammals such as Bandicoot, Sugar Glider, Northern Striped Possum, Red-necked Wallaby and Tree Kangaroo. At the end of the trip, you can expect well over 200 species including all the important birds this area is well-known for!
