Author: Carl from PahrumpDate of Trip: November 2006 In 2006 and 2007 we spent 255 Days driving around Australia. We started in Darwin, drove south to Alice Springs, backtracked to Cairns, went down the East Coast to Rockhampton, cut over to Melbourne, went across the Nullarbor Plain to Perth, drove up the West Coast to Broome, and finished by crossing the Kimberely Region on our way back to Darwin — 24,000 miles & 6 rental cars. Along the way we stayed in 56 cities and saw 693 bird species/subspecies. This Trip Report covers the 24-days we spent in Far North Queensland — Cairns, Daintree, Julatten, Atherton, and Mission Beach. We saw 240 bird species based in 5 locations: City Species Days Cairns 85 8 Daintree 125 7 Julatten 114 3 Atherton 137 4 Mission Beach 15 2 Total 240 24 The 5 areas are too far apart to bird from one central base.
