Please don’t hesitate to email any enquiries.
May through to November is our dryer, cooler season and December through to April, wetter and more humid, but still incredibly green, with beautiful rainforest waterfalls in full flow and for the keen birders Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands has a lot of wet season activity an example being the arrival of the beautiful Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher from New Guinea.
