Tropical and Far North Queensland Birding Tour 2023 – August Additional Departure (Fly In – Drive Out) – 8 Days

30 August 2023 - 7 September 2023

Tropical Far North Queensland is without doubt one of Australia’s top birding destinations. A variety of tropical habitats including rainforests, palm-fringed beaches, mangrove-lined mudflats, savannahs and cool mountain ranges result in a bird diversity unparalleled elsewhere in the country. Commencing in Cairns, we’ll bird the local area and head to well-known Kingfisher Park on the Atherton Tablelands, then traverse the unique Cape York Peninsula.

During this tour we aim to find all Tropical Far North Queensland specialties. Expect over 200 species including all the endemics and other important birds this area is well-known for such as Magnificent Riflebird, Frillnecked Monarch, Blue-faced Parrot-finch, Lovely Fairy-wren, White-streaked Honeyeater, Papuan Frogmouth, nesting Red Goshawks, Palm Cockatoo, Eclectus Parrot, Yellow-bellied Kingfisher and many more, including of course the rare Southern Cassowary. We’ll have rare access to Goldenshouldered Parrot nesting sites; explore the Lakefield region; we’ll go night spotting for owls and mammals’; and we’ll spend two days in the Iron Range rainforests, one of Australia’s most important ecosystems. We’ll also look for mammals such as Bandicoot, Sugar Glider, Northern Striped Possum, Red-necked Wallaby and Tree Kangaroo. Read on below for the full itinerary and checklist!
