In the centre of the Australian outback lies the town of Alice Springs. Surrounded by a variety of habitats and iconic destinations such as Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the Olgas, it is a great area for a few days’ birding. A good number of species that cannot be found elsewhere in the country occur here.
Situated within easy reach of the East and West MacDonnell Ranges, the grassy “spinifex” plains, outback desert dunes and waterholes; rich in indigenous culture and with its laid-back atmosphere, Alice Springs is an ideal base from where to explore Australia’s Red Centre.
Let our Alice Springs based bird guide take you on a tour of the Red Centre’s specialities visiting a variety of habitats in search of many exciting bird species. Exploring these different areas may yield enigmatic birds such as Dusky Grasswren, Rufous-crowned Emu-wren, Spinifexbird, Grey Honeyeater, Chiming Wedgebill, Western Bowerbird, Spinifex Pigeon Painted Finch and maybe even Grey Falcon…!
While in Alice Springs we can also arrange your sightseeing visit to world-famous Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the Olgas.
A guided birding tour around Alice Springs is the best way to find most, if not all, of the area’s sought-after species. Let us arrange customised private guiding for one or more day, starting from and returning to your accommodation in or near Alice Springs.
