Cairns Tour – Night Walk in Cairns Botanic Gardens – Nature & Photography Walk


The magic of the rainforest comes to life after dark and welcomes you with a chorus of frog croaks and the sparkling of a million eyeshines.

A walking tour especially for nature enthusiasts and photographers in the heart of Cairns. Every Night Walk is different. Being in nature offers an exciting and unpredictable experience full of surprises.

The tour will introduce you to the much-loved White-lipped tree frogs, Northern Stony Creek frogs, and many other species of amphibians. For those who like spiders, there are many that can be seen on the tour such as Net-casting spiders, Mirror-ball Spiders, huge Orb-weavers, and Huntsmans. People not fond of spiders will be relieved to know that they are usually happily weaving their webs or sitting on tree trunks. We see an abundance of nocturnal insects like moths, crickets, beetles, and stick insects. Most of these animals only come out at night and therefore are unseen by most people.

Other animals that can be seen on a Let’s Go Buggin Night Walk include Micro-bats, Papuan Frogmouths, Striped Possums, Speckled Flying Foxes, Pythons, Bandicoots, Pademelons and Echidnas.

The tours offer a great opportunity for photographers who would love to just ‘go to’ that spot to capture amazing photographs of some nocturnal critters.

If you are bringing your own camera, Bridgette can help you with your camera settings and composition ideas, techniques, and suggestions for capturing amazing images of the animals we encounter.
