    Admire Australia’s own avian icon – The Cassowary

    There is no mistaking the cassowary for any other bird. With glossy black plumage, a purple and blue neck and red wattles, its head crowned with a distinctive casque or helmet, this bird is a survivor. It is an evolutionary relic, having first appeared millions of years ago, and is believed by some to be the closest living relative to dinosaurs.

    Chasing waterfalls

    There are many ways to get wet in Tropical North Queensland, but for sheer exhilaration, nothing beats basking in the spray of a thundering wall of water, and TNQ has more vertical waterways that just about anywhere else in the country.
