About World Cassowary Day

On September 26th 2014 conservation enthusiasts of the Wet Tropics in Far North Queensland gathered at Kuranda to celebrate Cassowaries for the inaugural World Cassowary Day. Kuranda was chosen to launch World Cassowary Day, as Kuranda is the home of the indigenous Djabugay people, for the Djabugay the Cassowary is their totem since time immemorial. The Cassowary is the symbol of their being, it’s Djabugay’s reason to dance.
