I'm planning on staying in Kuranda, near Cairns, Austrailia, for about a month. During my stay, I'm interested in exploring and doing some wildlife film-making and photography. Does anyone have any information on local wildlife, great places to explore, and good topics to film? I'm also interested in suggestions on good field guides for the area.
We visited Kuranda in July 2016. We drove up there for a day trip and went to see Baron Falls in all its glory. The waterfalls were seriously impressive thanks to a huge downpour of rain that week.
In terms of wildlife, you'll no doubt stumble across plenty of birds and critters.
Make sure you use Google Maps to drive around and see the local streets - I'm 99% sure that's where you'll really find your stories.
Hope this helps!
