In the far south-west of Australia lies one of the world’s most isolated cities: Perth. To its north are inhospitable outback deserts. To its south is one of Australia’s best birding locations, where a great number of species occur that cannot be found elsewhere in the country, including 15 endemics.
These include Short-billed and Long-billed Black-Cockatoos, Western Corella, Red-capped Parrot, Western Rosella, Western Wattlebird, Western Spinebill, Gilbert’s Honeyeater, Red-winged Fairywren, Red-eared Firetail, Western Thornbill, Western Fieldwren and White-breasted Robin; and the infamous skulking trio: Noisy Scrub-bird, Western Whipbird and Western Bristlebird. Other good species to be found in the wider region include Southern Emuwren, White-cheeked Honeyeater, Western Yellow Robin, Western Whistler, Blue-breasted Fairywren, Rufous Treecreeper and (Western) Crested Shrike-tit, as well as Regent, Elegant & Rock Parrot.
Let our local guide design your birdwatching day-tour (or longer) around Perth and in the south- west region, taking in a range of habitats in the Perth area, including urban wetlands, jarrah forest and woodlands, the coast and the Swan River. On a day trip, expect to see 80-110 species, including 8-10 endemics, depending on the season and the weather.
A guided birding tour around Perth 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 Perth.
