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 Down Under 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.

"....Cranes, Currawongs & Dreams of Cassowaries...." highlights the birdlife of differing habitats around coastal Port Douglas & the higher, drier regions just inland from the coastal belt. We move base, allowing us to explore the forests, agricultural pasture lands & wetlands of the picturesque Atherton Tablelands. Here dozens of new, exciting species are added to our trip list – king parrots, scarlet rosellas, golden bowerbird, Victoria's riflebird, cranes, honeyeaters, catbirds & many of the local endemic species.

Our final adventure finds us birding Michaelmas Cay on the Great Barrier Reef, coming to terms with impressive breeding colonies of seabirds. Then, with a hot tip of a male cassowary escorting three well grown chicks, the stage is set for a resounding top-listing finale.

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.
