About Cassowary House & Tours

Cassowary House is a small family run guest house which lies in the world heritage tropical rain forests of Far North Queensland, within 30 minutes drive of Cairns. It was established in 1985 as a guest-house for those with an interest in natural history, particularly birds, and was one of the first birding businesses to set up in Far North Queensland. We offer a true rainforest experience. Apart from a small garden envelope immediately adjacent to the main house, the grounds and surrounding area are unspoilt rainforest, a great place to sit and relax or take quiet walks. The verandahs on the main house and also on the twin guest rooms are elevated and look straight out into the branches of the surrounding trees. The single rooms are under the main house and Cassowaries and musky rat-kangaroos are frequently seen from their patio. Cassowary House is a great place for those with an interest in bird and wildlife photography, and one of the best places in the world to see wild Cassowary, with thousands of birders getting their lifer here!
