Crane Week

Malanda, Tablelands Area

15 – 22 September 2018 - 

Free Entry

Every year, large flocks of stately grey birds gather on the Atherton Tablelands for the winter. Cranes are the subject of myth and legend around the world, they are immortalised in art and photography and are woven into the fabric of ancient cultures. They leap and dance, they bugle and call and they enrich lives. It's crane season on the Tablelands!

If you live on the Tablelands, it's not hard to spot the cranes, feeding in farmers' paddocks during the day, and flying in v formation every evening across the winter sunset to their favourite roosting sites.

Crane Week is a celebration of these ancient mythical birds. Join them for Tablelands Crane Week: watch, learn and photograph, spread an appreciation of cranes and you will help to ensure a safe future for them in the beautiful region of Australia they call home.
