Australia 2016 (Queensland)




Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites


From October 9 until November 10, 2016 we visited Queensland, Australia for one month.
Our first trip to this beautiful country. We landed in Brisbane and spend our first week around Brisbane,
Towoomba, Southporth and Lamington National Park. After this first week we travelled north towards Eungella National Park,
visiting sites like Cooloola Cove, Hervey Bay and Rockhampton along the route.
Our third week we stayed in the area around Townsville, Mission Beach and the Atherton Tablelands, ending up in Cairns.
We changed cars (from conventional to 4wd) and after enjoying the Great Barrier Reef for a full day,
we travelled through Daintree National Park towards Cooktown. Our last full week we explored the remote Cape York
Peninsula, visiting sites like Artemis, Iron Range and Lakefield National Parks. The few days we had left we stayed
around Julatten, Mount Lewis and Atherton Tableland again, surely one of the most beautiful parts
of this side of the country. In the end we had travelled over 6300km, saw 303 species of birds, 39 species of mammals
and a countless number of other creatures.
