Cassowary Tours is local Far North Queensland company specialising in bird, wildlife and photographic tours. One of the oldest bird and wildlife business in Far North Queensland, we have been operating  for well over twenty years. We specialise in individual and small group bird and wildlife tours around one of the most exciting destinations in Australia. This area has the largest avifauna of any area in Australia with the Tablelands above Cairns alone have 14 endemic bird species and more can be found up Cape York and over to the west. In addition there is  a huge variety of animal species that can be seen many of which can only be found in this area.

Originally based at Cassowary House in Kuranda we moved to a new larger property in February 2020. This includes a designated nature refuge with over a 100 acres of upland rainforest. We are busy cataloguing species and soon hope to be marking trails and setting up hides for photography of some of the great birds and wildlife we have around the place.

Now based at Topaz at the southern end of the Atherton Tablelands we offer a variety of guided day tours around the Cairns / Tablelands region.

While we have a number of ready made tours we are happy to adjust itineraries to suit your specific interests, time and budget.

If you are interested in tours further afield in Australia or overseas check out our sister company Sicklebill Safaris which offers the same service to the rest of Australia plus many overseas destinations including New Guinea, The Solomon Islands and other Pacific Islands, Japan, Asia, the Middle East and some great African destinations.
