It's Birdwatching Time in Port Douglas Daintree

Murphy Street Port Douglas

Despite the multi-million dollar holiday homes lining it's entire length Murphy Street in Port Douglas is one of the messiest streets in the shire. Always rubbish bins out, extensively potholed, no footpath, large real estate signs and holiday to-let signs litter the streetscape. But strangely it makes for a good walk with it's lovely tropical views and it's wildlife.

This morning I heard two sought after species, Lovely Fairy-wrens and Double-eyed Fig-Parrots along the eastern stretch. Sometimes there is a camp of Spectacled Flying-foxes set up on the high side although today they were found along Mudlo Street (opp #20) on the flat portion of town.

Murphy Street forms part of the Coastcare Walk around Port Douglas. 


Do the walk on your phone.
