Comfortable Nine Grasswren Birding Tour 2019 – 16 Days
26 July 2019 - 10 August 2019
This is a slow-paced version of our flagship Nine Grasswren tour, one of Australia‟s epic birding adventures. We will look for nine of Australia‟s 13 Grasswren species: Striated, Short-tailed, Western, Thick-billed, Eyrean, Grey, Kalkadoon, Carpentarian and Rusty Grasswren. From the vast expanses of Mallee scrub in the Vic-SA border region to the Flinders Ranges we travel up the Birdsville track through the outback, visit the stark country around Boulia-Winton and finish in the ranges around Mt Isa. This trip is a real adventure (yet fully accommodated), taking it easy by adding an extra 4 days to the standard itinerary.
We have secured access to some new birding locations exclusively for this tour. The rewards will be some of Australia‟s most sought-after outback species, wonderful scenery and great camaraderie. Accommodation will be of the highest available standard; the drives have been shortened; we’ll take plenty of breaks; the food will be of the best available. This tour has a new itinerary, so read on below to whet your appetite!
