BIRDING SAFARI - BIRDING BIRDSVILLE AND BEYOND!
This is the ultimate outback birding tour in Queensland and one that should be on every birder's bucket-list! One of the main locations on this trip is the iconic town of Birdsville; perched on the edge of the eastern edge of the sandy Simpson Desert and near Sturt's stony desert. These habitats, along with the channel country and its vast plains, ephemeral wetlands and a variety of other semi arid vegetations will be explored for their wildlife. Three Grasswrens - Rusty, Eyrian and Grey - are possible with a range of other key inland species; Gibberbird, Grey Falcon, Flock Bronzewings, Chirruping Wedgebills, Halls Babblers - to name a few.
Provisional dates: 12 - 26 June 2021

SEPTEMBER     STILL PLACES LEFT!         EMAIL FOR DETAILS.
BIRDING SAFARI: NW QLD SAFARI – 3 weeks
This 21 day safari, designed by Ken and Steve, begins at the port city of Townsville in Tropical North Queensland at the southern end of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. We begin by birding the varied habitats of  coastal Townsville, before making our way [much] further west into the Australian outback. The Australian outback is an incredibly diverse landscape; ancient, remote and wild. This safari, through a variety of inland habitats, will allow us to build a great list of birds and other wildlife. Expect to see flocks of beautiful parrots, nomadic Honeyeaters, brilliant coloured Chats, gorgeous finches and a host of raptor species. We will visit small outback towns, staying in comfortable accommodation, with hearty meals and country hospitality. The dry of the outback will be replaced by an oasis; Lawn Hill Gorge National Park - home to the exquisite Purple crowned Fairy wren. Karumba perched on the southern edge of the Gulf of Carpentaria, with mangroves full of specialty species, features next before a coast to coast journey across the base of Cape York Peninsular. Our safari finishes with lowland rainforests in Etty Bay [of Cassowary fame] and upland rainforest where truly Wet Tropic endemic birds and mammals still thrive! 
Dates: 30 August - 19 September 2021
