Birdwatching in the Daintree
The Daintree has spectacular birdlife, and many
birdwatchers come from all over the world to in search of these birds.
With more than 430 types of birds, Daintree is a bird-watchers paradise.
Cassowaries, herons, black bitterns, kingfishers, papuan frogmouths,
wompoo fruit-doves, fig parrots, flycatchers, kookaburras, torres strait
pigeons, starlings, the list is )almost) endless....
Even if you're not in to birdwatching then a face to face meeting with
a cassowary is an experience not to forget!
And if you don't believe me then maybe you'll believe Sir David Attenborough....
Although there is spectacular bird life all though the
Daintree the tours that specialize the most in birdwatching are based
around the Daintree river.
Dan Irby's Daintree River Cruises and Tours
Dan Irby's Mangrove Adventures offers
Daintree River cruises which are very personal and informative
for both the amateur and professional visitors all year round.
Dan personally conducts all the tours.
Join Dan for a Daintree River Tour and you will see and learn
about the interaction and importance of the fascinating plants
and animals found only in the Daintree River Mangrove ecosystem.
Dan Irby's Mangrove Adventures caters for tour groups of 2-10
people on the Daintree River.
The main boat, "Nightwatchman" is 6 metres long with
an open top and very comfortable 360 degree swivel seats. The
swivel seats allow you to turn to see "the action" rather
than sitting shoulder to shoulder on a bench seat. Nightwatchman's
shallow draft allows a much closer approach to things of interest.
Its wide beam also gives it great stability.
You will need to make your own way to the Daintree river but you
can be picked up from either side. CHECK

Chris Dahlberg's Birdwatching Tours
Dahlberg pioneered small group tours with dawn departures and
the use of a vessel without a roof back in 1992.
You will see an average of 50 wildlife species on the two hour
tour and a list of those wildlife sightings for your particular
tour is uploaded to this web site before lunch the same day.
Chris exploits the early morning ambience and the absence of other
tourists by departing from the Daintree Village jetty at dawn.
All tours are conducted by Chris Dahlberg himself. CHECK
AVAILABILITY AND BOOK ONLINE
If you book on Chris Dahlberg's Birdwatching Tour then the early
departure hour means that you will have to find some accommodation
in Daintree Village to get to the jetty on time, if you're a birdwatcher
then you'll enjoy staying at Redmill
House where the owners are also enthusiastic birdwatchers.
