Your Queensland Birding Adventure
Far North Queensland is without doubt one of Australia’s top birding destinations. 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 up to 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’ll have rare access to Golden-shouldered Parrot nesting sites; explore Lakefield National Park; we’ll go night spotting for owls and mammals’; and we’ll spend three days in Iron Range National Park, one of Australia’s most important ecosystems.
