Resident cassowaries

The chance to encounter a cassowary will make this the most unforgettable rainforest journey.

Barron Falls Estate is privileged to be home to the elusive cassowary.

Even though we can't guarantee cassowary sightings, there is an 80% chance to encounter one of these amazing looking birds in one of our rainforest tours.

Unfortunately, cassowaries have a reputation for being aggressive. However, we are pleased to be able to say that in 50+ years of sharing this space with them, we are yet to see any kind of dangerous behaviour.

We continue to observe and record information about cassowaries as we endeavour to know more about them.
