I also went on the night tour into the rainforest to search for owls but
unfortunately we didn't find any - but we did hear an Owlet Nightjar and a
group of Sulpher Crested Cockatoos calling, the only wildlife we actually
saw were Fruit Bats, Little Red Fruit Bats, some sort of Glider, an eel in a
creek and a few trapdoor spiders.
