Cairns Tour – Let’s Go Buggin –Nature & Photography Walk


See all the little things! Small group nature & photography tour to see the miniature world of Insects and Spiders in the Cairns Botanic Gardens.

A leisurely stroll in tropical paradise, the Cairns Botanic Gardens. We will share with you several bug-hubs that hides the most elusive beauties! See and photograph a huge variety of weird and wonderful insects, a myriad of spiders, fungi and a host of many other tiny creatures that are hidden in the undergrowth.

Join our macro photographers and tour guides Bridgette or Ros for a personalised, highly specified tour of the gardens and the treasures waiting to be discovered. The nature and photography tour will introduce you to Australia’s largest butterfly and caterpillar, the Cairns Birdwing. You will also see many other colourful insects and spiders including Australia’s first spider, the Northern Jewelled Orbweaver and a recently discovered Lacebug nicknamed ‘The Midgey Bridgey’.
