Daintree Birds

Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher

The Daintree Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef region is a world-famous birdwatchers' Paradise with over 430 species having been recorded - this is more than half the species found in Australia.

Varied vegetation on the property ensures regular seasonal visits by a wide range of bird species (with more than 140 having been identified at Daintree Valley Haven).

Birders will find that the bungalows provide perfect birdwatching accommodation, each having it's own private verandah overlooking water and many species of old- and new-growth rainforest trees.

There are also numerous tropical fruit trees and nectar-producing flowering plants which attract different bird species including a large variety of Honeyeaters; the wetlands-dam is visited by many water-birds - Black Bitterns, various Egrets and Herons, Spoonbills, Kingfishers and Rainbow Bee-eaters swooping over the water.

... what a fabulous location! The wildlife is great - we saw over 30
species of birds before we had to really try! ...

Butterflies and Moths

Cairns Birdwing Butterfly

Spectacular butterflies are often seen in large numbers fluttering around the flowering native plants. The predominant species are the irridescent blue Ulysses and Australia's largest butterfly, the magnificent Cairns Birdwing but there are numerous other species.

Moths and a myriad other insects abound, especially during the rainy season. You may be lucky enough to spot an enormous Hercules Moth, the largest moth in Australia and, in relation to wingspan, arguably also the world's largest.

 

 

 

Reviews

Flame of the Forest and coconut palm

Thank you Daphne and Peter for sharing your slice of heaven with us.  We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our honeymoon.  You are the Perfect Hosts, there when and if we need, but allowing privacy as well.  The perfect mix of sight-seeing and tranquility, with some beautiful views around your property.   Thank you for sharing your local knowledge and making recommendations.  It  has been an amazing experience.   We will certainly return to celebrate anniversaries in a similar manner.

Peter and Karen - Melbourne - June 2017

 

To Daphne and Peter, thank you for having us.  We have loved every minute of our stay here in this beautiful part of the country.  Your attention to the little details has made it a home from home.  Truly delightful!

Allan and Julie - Sheffield, UK - January 2017

 

Daphne and Peter, thank you very much for your warm hospitality.  Daintree Valley Haven is a fantastic little gem.  Great setting, comfy and practical bungalows, very pleasant breakfast - the sights, the sounds, the smells of the surrounding nature is awesome!  So happy to have stumbled upon your B&B by pure luck while exploring the back roads.  Only regret is that we have to move on and cannot stay for a full week.

Marc and Norman - Toronto, Canada - December 2016

 

IT'S SO QUIET!!  A wonderful place to stay.  Really enjoyed the great yoghurt, jams and special fruits not to mention the barramundi and steak/sausage packs!  It has been a pleasure to experience nature at it's best.  Congratulation to Peter and Daphne for a job well done!

Jane and Neil - SA - October 2016

Perfect winter weather now with warm days and nights getting cooler (if it's below 20C we reach for the extra blankets!)

Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher on hand This is an old photo - this morning it was lovely to hear the first call of a Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher. They're arriving a little later than normal as they usually migrate from New Guinea around October, for their breeding season.

This one had flown into a window (we get some of our best photo-ops of slightly-stunned birds!) and Peter was able to pick her up and put her on the verandah rail till she recovered and flew off.

What a wonderful place to come home to. Set in an idyllic, tranquil rainforest setting, it seemed like we were in another world. Very comfortable unit with quiet split system air conditioning, wonderful breakfasts and balcony looking out over a lake with lots of birds to be observed. Unit was very clean and well appointed. Peter and Daphne were very welcoming and looked after us extremely well. A jewel of a place to stay, we would have no hesitation in going back anytime!

We stayed at the Daintree Valley Haven for a weekend. It was absolutely amazing! We cooked a lot and the place was like a home away from home. Peter and Daphne are lovely people! Will definitely come back!
