Cooktown Birdwatching

When it comes to birding in the far north, Cooktown is a unique geographical base, due to its access to an incredible array of eco-systems, including wet tropics rainforest, mangrove-lined estuaries, open savanna, sclerophyll and riverine forests and stunning escarpment country.

You may wish to enjoy a casual tour of Cooktown's beautiful scenery, looking through the binoculars and taking in some new birds, or you could be a very keen birder chasing some of the rarer species, specific to the area; like the Silver-crowned Friarbird, White-streaked  Honeyeater, Lovely Fairy-wren, Tropical Scrubwren, Northern Fantail, White-browed Robin, or the seasonal visiting Black-winged Monarch and Buff-breasted Kingfisher (Nov-March).

Either way your local birdwatching guide David, will make this half-day adventure tour a rewarding experience.
