Hikes, Mt bikes, fishing or simply bird watching or photography in the garden are our favourites. Cape York offers fantastic bird watching. Birding at Mungumby is popular with many rare and unique species of birds seen directly at the lodge. See if you can spot the elusive Victoria's Rifle Bird near the car park!
