At the Daintree Ecolodge, we’re spoiled to be surrounded by beautiful wildlife every day – especially birds. The Daintree Rainforest is internationally recognised as one of Australia’s premier birdwatching locations, with over 430 bird species recorded in the Daintree – more than half the bird species for the entire continent!
We’ve partnered with Ted’s Cameras to bring you everything you need to know about birdwatching in the Daintree Rainforest.
Bird Watching In The Daintree
A major attraction for birdwatchers far and wide, the Daintree Rainforest hosts thousands of local and overseas bird enthusiasts every year. Many come in search of the elusive Southern Cassowary or the majestic Great Billed Heron.
The Daintree National Park is made up of 1,200 square kilometres of lush, tropical rainforest, and it would be impossible to cover it all in a single day. As keen birdwatchers know, some bird species are shy, so you need to visit a site more than once to see if they’ll come out of hiding!
At the Daintree Ecolodge, we provide the perfect base for birdwatching adventures, with many special activities on offer for our bird loving guests. Join us on a guided rainforest walk, take a sunset birdwatching cruise down the majestic Daintree River, or let our chefs pack you a gourmet picnic hamper and embark on a birdwatching expedition.
