Great Southern Birding Tour – 13 Days

2 November 2018 - 14 November 2018

Departing in Adelaide, we bird along the coast to the outback deserts and dry watercourses, with birds such as Cinnamon Quail-thrush, Thick-billed Grasswren and Chestnut-breasted Whiteface. The Flinders Ranges, with its rugged escarpments and deep gorges provide rich birdlife including the elusive Short-tailed Grasswren.

We visit Birdlife Australia’s splendid Gluepot reserve, home to Malleefowl, Striated Grasswren, the endangered Black-eared Miner, Chestnut Quail-thrush, Southern Scrub-robin and the very rare Red-lored Whistler. The Murray River will provide us with plenty of excitement with Freckled Duck, Yellow Rosella, Regent and Superb Parrot. Heading east we search for Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo and the tiny Mallee Emu-wren while on the grassy plains we spotlight the endemic and very rare Plains-wanderer. We’ll visit Chiltern NP with chance of Turquoise Parrot, White-throated Nightjar and Regent Honeyeater. Along the Great Ocean Road we pick up Rufous Bristlebird and Gang-gang Cockatoo; we marvel at the masses of waterbirds in Werribee and visit the tall, wet hill forests near Melbourne, home to Superb Lyrebird, Powerful Owl and many other forest birds.
