Kingfisher Park Birdwatcher’s Lodge
Eco-friendly place to stay
Guaranteed to get keen birdwatchers excited, this eco-accredited establishment at Julatten is renowned as one of the best birdwatching spots north of Cairns, with rare endemic species seen around the pool. For six months of the year, one of the sexiest birds in Australia, the buff-breasted paradise-kingfisher, can be seen nesting in the termite mounds on the 5-hectare property. One of the owners is an ornithological consultant and upon arrival at the lodge you will be given up-to-date information on possible places to find particular bird species, a comprehensive bird list for the area and maps of the local birding hotspots. Accommodation includes self-contained units, camping or a bunkhouse.
