The Atherton Tablelands is one of the birding hot spots of Australia. An abundance of habitats within a small area leads to the occurrence of almost half of Australia's birds in this district.
Special evening tours to view owls are best booked well in advance as they are tailored to your needs.
Lesser Sooty Owl, Australian Fernwren, Atherton Scrubwren, Mountain Thornbill, Macleay's Honeyeater, Bridled Honeyeater, Cryptic Honeyeater, Grey-headed Robin, Chowchilla, Bower's Shrike-thrush, Pied Monarch, Victoria's Riflebird, Tooth-billed Bowerbird, Spotted Catbird and Golden Bowerbird are all wet tropic endemics.
There are endemic subspecies as well like the cute but elusive Double-eyed Fig-Parrot, the Little Red Boobook and the ‘Herberton Honeyeater'.
