That Daintree features prominently when Cairns is mentioned is not surprising. Daintree is the world heritage rainforest to the north of the City of Cairns and attracts the authors, sound recordists, photographers and filmmakers like no other. Having access to a willing and knowledgeable local birdwatcher with a small flat-bottomed boat that could get close to birds quietly for the sound recordists, filmmakers and photographers was just the icing on the cake. Chris Dahlberg and Denise Collins have been involved in the production of all these items, providing the boat, the fuel, the permits, the insurance, the time and sometimes the accommodation (Red Mill House) and meals. Daintree is synonymous with Cairns Birdwatching.

NOTE: Officially Daintree became part of Cairns with the local government amalgamation of the Douglas Shire and Cairns Council in March 2008. There has been a strong move for de-amalgamation since that moment and with council elections due in March 2012 and state elections some time after there could be some more changes.
10 March 2013. The Douglas Shire will be re-instated 1 Jan 2014.
