About this product

Australia hosts some 780 kinds of birds, with the diverse habitats of tropical North Queensland alone numbering an astonishing 450+ species.

In this account – Down Under 1 – the first of a pair of two hour DVDs, wildlife film-makers Ann & Malcolm Rymer spend a month getting to know the birds & wildlife of this relatively compact, bird-rich region, documenting a cross-section of common, everyday birds, as well as local endemics & more difficult to find species.

"....figgies, firetails & fairy wrens...." highlights the birdlife of various productive habitats in the Cairns area, featuring the Botanical Gardens, Centenary Lake, the shorebirds of Cairns Esplanade, Cattana Wetlands etc.

Moving a little further North we bird the picturesque Daintree region, taking a couple of birding trips on the Daintree river & explore the tropical rainforests which clothe the coastal belt.

Both DVDs are designed to appeal to first-time as well as experienced, seasoned birders to North Queensland featuring scores of interesting & sought-after birds, landscapes & associated wildlife.

The adventures are continued in the companion DVD – Down Under 2 – "....Cranes, Currawongs & Dreams of Cassowaries...."
