Far North Queensland Birding Tour

Your Queensland Birding Adventure

>>Available as private tour only in 2017<<

Far North Queensland is without doubt Australia’s top birding destination. A variety of tropical habitats including tropical rainforests, palm-fringed beaches, mangrove-lined mudflats, tropical savannahs and cool mountain ranges result in a bird diversity unparalleled elsewhere in the country. Traversing the unique Cape York Peninsula from Cairns, during this tour we aim to find all Far North Queensland specialties. Expect well over 200 species including all the important birds this area is well-known for such as Magnificent Riflebird, Frill-necked Monarch, White-streaked Honeyeater, nesting Red Goshawks, Palm Cockatoo, Eclectus Parrot, Yellow-bellied Kingfisher and of course Cassowary. We will spend two days in the Wet Tropics around Cairns, picking up the 13 endemics local to that very scenic area – including the sought-after Golden Bowerbird and Blue-faced Parrot-finch. We’ll visit the well-known Kingfisher Park Birding Lodge; have rare access to Golden-shouldered Parrot nesting sites; explore Lakefield National Park and spend three days in Iron Range National Park, one of Australia’s most important ecosystems.
