About Us

Cassowary Tours operates out of Cassowary House, a bird and wildlife lodge sited entirely within the rainforest on the edge of the Tablelands above Cairns. We offer expert and experienced bird and wildlife guides for days and ½ days around the Cairns/Tablelands area and extended tours around all of Far North Queensland.

Our tour size rarely exceeds 6 participants and we welcome couples and individuals. We feel that the experiences are better with smaller groups especially in the rainforest where many of our tours take place.

While we offer some scheduled tours every year, most of our tours are run on request. You can use one of our ready made itineraries  or so if you have a particular destination in mind and would like to work on an itinerary with us please let us know. If you would like us to advertise for other participants to accompany you we are happy to do so.

We can adjust our itineraries to suit particular interests such as photography, mammals, butterflies, dragonflies, herps or perhaps a target list and we are as happy to take beginners and those with a general interest as we are to take experienced birders with a hit list. Please note that for customised tours prices will vary depending what is required but the basic standard trip starts from about AU$450.00 a day. See the customised tours page

Please note that our costs are for 2 adults. Please enquire about the special rates for children traveling with 2 adults.

Why not check out our regular guides. We also have a number of other people we can call on for specific expertise or when times get really busy.
