The Atherton Tablelands feature lush rainforest, nutrient rich volcanic soils and a remarkable concentration of rare wildlife. By day the area is a birdwatcher's delight and there is also a chance to see the Musky Rat Kangaroo (the smallest and most primitive kangaroo), Boyd's Forest Dragon, and other interesting local endemics. At dusk by the river you have an excellent chance of seeing platypus, the fascinating egg-laying mammal unique to Australia.
After dinner at a country restaurant, you head through dry and wet sclerophyll forest to a spotlighting destination, and walk quietly along a misty mountain track looking to spot Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo and the lemuroid, Green and Herbert River Ringtail possums and other unusual mammals found only in this region. You may also see gliders, frogs and owls.
