The Must-See Animals of Tropical North Queensland!

The most famous stars living in Tropical North Queensland are undoubtedly the collection of creatures that make their homes there. Weird, wonderful and magnificent, the wildlife of this part of the world is among the most varied and vibrant, but also some of the easiest to actually see. So, without further ado, may we introduce the TNQ family....

 

 

 

 Despite their remarkable size, whales can be one of the more elusive inhabitants of the area, but with around 5000 Humpback and Swarf Minke whales making the journey from the Antarctic, to the warmer waters of tropical Cairns each year, you'll have a good chance! Head over between June and September for your best chance of witnessing these giants of the ocean for yourself!

 

 

A trip to the Kuranda Koala Gardens in Cairns will bring you up close to some of Australia's best-loved and most recognisable creatures. One of said creatures is the unmistakable Koala. The gardens are one of only a few places in the entire world where you can 'Cuddle a Koala' (with adherence to a strict Government Code of Practice) and admire them doing what they do best: eat, sleep and look impossibly cute.

 

 

Here, you'll also find a few more of our furry friends in the form of Wombats, Wallabies and adorable Sugar Gliders. This trio have been melting hearts for years with their big beady eyes and even bigger personalities. You can see these little guys scurry around their own habitats and keepers feed them little treats too!

 

 

There are a few feathered friends that you should certainly say hello to in Tropical North Queensland too! The imposing Cassowary is a bird that is as fearsome as it is colourful. Truly photogenic they may be, but don't get too close if you see one, they might not take kindly to it! More colourful and less feisty are Lorikeets, who are often found in the rainforest. These guys aren't shy and might even land on you to say hello! Both birds can be found in Port Douglas. 

 

 

For those wanting to meet some marine life, you're in for a treat with a vast array of animals ready to say hello and swim alongside you. Owing its popularity to a certain Pixar film, the Clown Fish is usually in high demand, with divers wanting to catch a glimpse of its now famous orange and white stripes. Also a star in the film, Turtles might also stop by on your dives for a real treat!
