Discover the Cairns region on this night tour visiting the World Heritage Listed National Parks around Cairns. This tour is host to small personal wildlife spotting and nocturnal spotlighting tours into the world’s oldest continuously surviving rainforest for more than 30 years. Guests are guided to the Atherton Tablelands to observe animals, such as the elusive platypus and tree kangaroo, in their natural habitat.
The Tablelands are within easy reach of Cairns offering a shorter drive time than Daintree rainforest tours and greater wildlife spotting opportunities. Our guides will introduce you to some of the world’s most unusual animals, including the elusive platypus (we have a 90% success rate), tree kangaroos, possums, gliders, flying foxes, bandicoots, echidnas, snakes, frogs and many others.
The best time of day to spot wildlife in Australia is at dusk through to nighttime so our tours depart in the early afternoon. As the rainforest comes alive at night, 80% of animals in Australia are nocturnal or more active at night, our spotlights enable us to capture activity up in the canopy.
Experiencing the tropical rainforest at night is something you will always remember, especially with an informative guide to help you understand this magnificent wildlife environment!
