Myself and a few friends took a trip to the Iron Rangte during November, at about the same time as many of the guided tours. I have finally finished preparing a report of our finding/observations. It includes photos of many of the Frogs/reptiles mentioned for those that are not familiar with the species, and yes...common names are provided were possible.

Those not interested in anything but the birds may wish to have a look at the limited number of bird pictures. The page may be found at:

then simply follow the links of the left to:
Trip Reports --> Queensland (click on the map) -->Iron Range...blah blah blah.

Highlights from the trip were:

253 species of birds including all the York endimics (except the Button-quail) as well as
Red Goshawk;
Oriental Cuckoo;
Black Bittern; and
most Cairns area specialties.

32 species of frogs including;
Litoria nannotis;
Nyctimystes dayi;
Taudactylus eungellensis; and
verious microhylid species.

46 species of reptiles including;
9 carlia species;
Varanus keithhorni; and
Leipdodactylus lugubris.

and 11 species of native mammals the best of which was probably Daintree River Ringtail.
