Top End Adventure Overview
Join us for an exciting tour through prime birding country in Australia’s ‘Top End’ in the Northern Territory around Darwin. This region includes floodplains and wetlands, savannah woodland and massive termite mounds. It is perfect habitat for many finches, parrots and other great birds. It includes a visit to world-renowned Kakadu National Park, a waterfowl paradise with the odd saltwater crocodile or two…!
Double-barred, Crimson and Long-tailed Finches and Chestnut-breasted Mannikins can be seen around Darwin. Masked, Gouldian, Zebra and Star Finches and Yellow-rumped and Pictorella Mannikins can be seen at various locations between Darwin and Timber Creek. Views of most of these finches should be frequent and sustained, enabling guests to properly observe them and learn about their behaviour. Expect to see plenty of other grain eaters too, such as parrots, pigeons and doves, quails and button-quails. This is a good time of the year to see raptors as well, with even a chance of the rare Red Goshawk.
This tour starts with an early pick-up from your accommodation in Darwin. Included are all touring costs, meals and accommodation. Accommodation is in comfortable rooms with queen and single beds and air-conditioning. Cold water, tea, coffee and snacks are available at any time. This tour is available as a group tour commencing on 16 September 2017 and as a private charter at other times (subject to availability).
