Eyes on Wildlife offers birding and wildlife tours in Cairns and surrounds in Far North Queensland, Australia.

We have an exceptional biological diversity which few other regions in the world can compete with. The Great Barrier Reef, Daintree National Park and the Atherton Tablelands are the best known destinations around Cairns, but Far North Queensland has so much to discover it can dazzle even the most experienced naturalist!

Together we will uncover the hidden wonders of the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics of Queensland and beyond. With personalized itineraries we will make sure you see the birds and other wildlife you travelled here for, and maximize the time you have for photography.

We will also unveil the escapades of our nocturnal wildlife on our specialized nocturnal spotlighting tours. Don't miss out on seeing our Wet Tropics possums, gliders or Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo and other mammals. Book a tour today! Patrick will guide you with passion!

"...Patrick De Geest of Eyes on Wildlife is one of the top 3 guides in the world that I have ever had the pleasure of travelling with. Highly recommended!" Russell Graham top birder from the USA, listed top 50 in the world with more than 8000 species seen. Facebook review December 2017.

"A day with Patrick is like being in your favourite nature television programme; we were privileged to benefit from his wide knowledge, his enthusiasm and his amazing ability to spot animals and birds. Two great days. The Eggebert/Walker family.", UK. email August 2018.

"It doesn’t get better. I had the most amazing spotlighting experience ever. I’ve been spotlighting and teaching about Australian mammals since the early 70's. Even written some kids books about these amazing creatures. Wow. I saw three possum species I had never seen. Plus you must experience the remarkable striped possum. Tree kangaroos were on call.  Got magical photos of a platypus, gecko and frog. I learned heaps. On my own I wouldn’t have found all these animals in a month. (I think we found a dozen species) This is a one of a kind experience seeing this many native mammals, half unique to these tablelands. These animals are very illusive and you won’t see most in a zoo. I’m also a wildlife photographer exploring across Australia and this is the best one day tour I’ve done." Bob Winters (one of the most experienced and published environmental educators in Australia) email September 2019
