Do you want to make the most of your time on the Atherton Tablelands? Let our experienced bird and wildlife guides show you the natural wonders that it has to offer.
For anyone interested in natural history, this is a “must visit” destination. There is an incredible diversity of wildlife with some great mammals – the iconic Platypus and the ungainly Tree Kangaroo are always firm favourites – plus a good variety of reptiles, frogs, insects and orchids and the biggest avifauna of anywhere in Australia including 15 endemic species. All these can be found amongst beautiful scenery with a wide variety of habitats from waterfalls to rainforests, wetlands to dry eucalypt woodlands and of course the coast. There is something to interest everyone.
Whether you are just generally interested in wildlife and visiting beautiful places or have a specific wants list, our expert guides are here to help you. We arrange our tours to suit your areas of interest and expertise. We have a number of ready-made itineraries for half or full day trips and longer accommodated tours and, if you can’t find what you want we are always happy to customise tours to suit individuals. We are also happy to run tours specifically for photographers and realise their needs are very different to those of more conventional wildlife enthusiasts.
Our guides will have spotting scopes, reference books and complimentary water with them. If you don’t have binoculars let us know in advance and we can usually provide some for you to borrow for the tour duration. Tours can start in Cairns or up in the Tablelands and we can take you all over Tropical North Queensland.
We believe in ethical bird and wildlife watching as we want future generation’s to still be able enjoy the things we show you now.
