When you have been fortunate enough to do as many tours as I have and you recall one of those tours above all others you know it is something special. David is the closet thing I have ever met to a real life Dr Dolittle. At his property Thylogale in the Daintree Rainforest of Far North Queensland, David takes a maximum of 4 people only, on a day to remember. The tour begins with a walk through his forest and from the very start it is “different”. When I did the tour we had only walked about 20 metres when a bird flew out of the forest and landed on his shoulder, – this was a definite “oh my god” moment! Then the forest seemed to come to life with wallabies, musky rat kangaroos and a myriad of birds as they came to visit their old friend David. David told me how he had sat quietly in the forest every day for almost 2 years to accustom the animals to him and now these wild creatures see him as part of the furniture. If you are travelling to the Cairns region and have even only a passing interest in the natural world you MUST do this as it will not be forgotten – imagine a cross between Sir David Attenborough, Dr Dolittle and David Suzuki and that is what you will get.
