About Us

Local People

We are local people. We live and work in the area.

Local Knowledge

 As long time Far North Queensland residents we know the importance of local knowledge. Our guides keep up to date with bird and animal movements, tides, local weather conditions and road closures.

Small Groups

We believe that when it comes to wildlife and nature, small groups are less intrusive and allow for a much better experience.

We are busy cataloguing species and exploring 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.
