BIRDWATCHING


The mild climate and extraordinary diversity of Tropical North Queensland provide a veritable paradise for birds... and birdwatchers! From noisy cockatoos to silent waders, from the irradescent Azure Kingfisher to great Australian Bustard, the Cassowary and the Kookaburra, you'd better bring a fresh notepad and a sharp pencil. The Wet Tropics region is home to twenty percent of Australia's bird species, many of which are not found anywhere else in the world. But best of all, you get to view these beauties in the surrounds of the most wonderful nature on earth!
