Australian bird and wildlife photography tours

Individually tailored photographic tours to numerous areas in north Queensland are now available. Tours can be organised to target specific species of birds or wildlife and last as long as is necessary or desired by you, the client. Suggested tour duration is from one to five days for local tours or a little longer for Cape York trips. Additionally if you would like to tour the area on your own but require some assistance, then local guiding is available and local advice on locating specific species in the Ingham, Townsville and nearby ranges area will also be happily provided.

The north Queensland region is an area of outstanding natural beauty. This area is very rich in bird and animal life and can offer a diverse array of habitats and varied terrain in a relatively small area compared to other parts of Australia. Thus providing a greater variety and concentration of bird and animal species in a shorter period of time. The region claims to have over 400 species of birds, some of which are endemic to the area. Tour options can include the pristine wetlands of the Burdekin and Hinchinbrook, the wet tropical rainforest of Paluma and the Cairns highlands, the open woodlands and brigalow (Acacia) of the outback, and the bird rich plains and waterways of the coast, or any combination therof. The north Queensland area boasts some of the world’s most impressive bird-life.

Local tours can be arranged to start or finish in Cairns or Townsville if arriving by air. These tours offer a great opportunity for bird and wildlife photographers arriving in Australia and looking for a personalised, comprehensive and all inclusive tour at very reasonable rates. This is a part time gig for me, I do it more for the pleasure than as a form of employment.
