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
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.
