IN 2020...


This is a wonderful short birding trip that begins in the Queensland capital city of Brisbane. The route is a six day loop ranging south along the New England Highway into New South Wales, cutting across picturesque ranges to the Pacific Coast before returning north via some of the finest birding sites in north eastern New South Wales. Queensland's Lockyer Valley will provide an entree into the birds of the inland and the 'granite' town of Stanthorpe with Giraween National Park nearby will add even more species. National Parks, with evocative names like 'Cathederal Rock', 'Washpool' and 'Oxley Wild Rivers' will be visited, their scenery admired and hopefully their birds ticked! Along the New England we will stay at the picturesque towns of Glen Innes and Armidale before heading east to bird along some great coastal sites such as Brooms Head, Ballina and Byron Bay.
