1. Cairns: Night Walk in Cairns Botanic Gardens
Experience the rainforest boardwalk of the Cairns Botanic Gardens as the nocturnal creatures wake up for the night with this small group tour. Have a quick safety briefing at the meeting point and start a walking route that has been adapted for the season. Visit a number of host plants that are habitats for regularly seen creatures. Take the opportunity to capture photographs of some nocturnal creatures Find white-lipped tree frogs and northern stony creek frogs. Marvel at busy spiders such as net-casting spiders, garden orb-weavers, and Huntsmans. See critters that only come out at night and usually go unseen. Listen to a chorus of frog croaks, cricket chirps, and cicada buzzes as the rainforest comes alive. Keep your eyes peeled for micro-bats, Papuan frogmouth birds, striped possums, speckled flying foxes, longicorn beetles, Pademelons and Echidnas.
