Daintree Bird Walk

Walk symbol
Birdwatching or birding is an activity that people come to Daintree for. It is here that some of the world's more experienced birders come to see some of the elusive rainforest and water species.
You can do this by yourself by going on an early morning walk or taking a special early morning boat tour with Ian "Sauce" Worcester:
  Dawn Birdwatching Cruise

So what birds are here?
"From some of the world's smallest parrots and kingfishers to he largest of cuckoo's, to birds that can see in the dark and pigeons more colourful than Amazonian parrots this region is central to many of the most exciting birds in the world.  After breeding in the high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere shorebirds and waders fly longer distances than the international traveler to be here in summer.  In  Spring, the quietness of the rainforest can suddenly shatter with the call of the male Victoria's riflebird advertising for a mate.  He dappling light of the rainforest is pierced with a flash of red, white and blue - a Paradise-Kingfisher.  The dawn chorus rising from a tiny rainforest creek is dramatically interrupted by the leonine call of the crocodile bird.  At almost any time one of the 430 bird species can steal the scene.  The daytime eco show is dominated by birds that range in size from the diminutive endemic Mountain Thornbill to the giant, yet vulnerable, Southern Cassowary as each carves their niche in Queensland's Wet Tropics."
