Daintree in Tropical North Queensland’s Wet Tropics region is internationally recognised as one of Australia’s premier birdwatching locations. Over 430 species of birds have been recorded in the area encompassing the Wet Tropics and the Great Barrier Reef region of Australia. This is more than half the bird species for the entire continent.
The Wet Tropics has 13 endemic species and of these Lesser Sooty Owl, Macleay’s Honeyeater, Bridled Honeyeater, Pied Monarch, and Victoria’s Riflebird can be seen in and around Daintree. Also of enormous interest to birdwatchers are the Great-billed Heron, Black Bittern, Mangrove Robin, Lovely Fairy-wren, Double-eyed Fig Parrot, Red-necked Crake and of course, the Southern Cassowary which may be seen on the northern side of the Daintree river. 8 out of 10 of Australia’s Kingfisher species, including the spectacular Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher and the diminutive Little Kingfisher can also be spotted in the Daintree.
