Malleefowl tour

The rare & elusive Malleefowl will be the focus of this tour. Watch these amazing and increasingly rare birds as they tend to their nesting mounds. An unforgettable experience. Expect plenty of other good birds along the way as well, including Striated Grasswren, Mallee Emu-wren, Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo, honeyeaters and parrots.
Malleefowl nest mounds are active in summer and we’ve scheduled these tours to take advantage of this.

Vast areas of semi-arid Australia were once covered in the unique Mallee scrubland. Comprising a number of multi-stemmed Eucalypt species with a varied understorey, much of this habitat has been lost to agriculture. What remains is home to many rare, threatened, specialised and often hard-to-find bird species. It’s a magical environment, where one could spend hours, if not days, exploring the spinifex-covered sand dunes, listening to the wind in the Casuarina (black oak/buloke) woods, watching the sun rise through veils of fog…
