Australian Parrots

Australia, the land of parrots. Over 50 species in all! Our 16 day tour is designed to connect participants with approximately half of these gorgeous and charismatic birds! Parrots live in every different habitat found in the country. During our two weeks down under we will visit and target those areas richest in parrot numbers and variety. Habitats will vary from parks and botanical gardens in the south, to rugged and dry regions in the interior. Others are only found in the humid forests of the Northern Territories top end.

April/May is the Australian autumn and an opportune season to interact with parrots. During this period they tend to be congregated in flocks rather than paired in more scattered locations during the breeding season. Not just parrots, we will encounter a variety of other fascinating wildlife species as well. Such iconic species as the Emu, Kangaroo, Kookaburra and possibly even the infamous salt water crocodile in the region of Kakadu. This tour presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to view parrots, often only seen as popular cage birds, living wild and free against the backdrop of this varied rugged and spectacular country.

Commencing in Melbourne, Vic, we spend a week exploring the parrot-rich back-country of Victoria and New South Wales. We’ll then fly to Brisbane and head into Queensland’s dry outback interior for a few days, and then on to the Top End (Darwin, NT) to finish in the Tropical Far North Top End.

Very Enjoyable and Extremely Productive

“Thank you for the bird guiding. Both days were both very enjoyable and extremely productive. We really appreciated the trouble that you took to ensure that we saw as many (virtually all in fact!) of our ‘wanted’ species!”
