Wildlife & Birdwatching

The environment at Mount Mulligan supports a range of fauna and flora with agile wallabies often spotted around the lodge and frequent opportunities to sight rainbow lorikeets, kookaburras and noisy friar birds to name a few species. Each year more than 50 new species of plants, algae, lichens and fungi are discovered in Queensland. In 2017, a plant species was discovered on Mount Mulligan and it’s the only place it grows in the world. When discovering the property, take one of our Mount Mulligan Naturalist Charts and identify the plants and animals around you.
