Ken Cross is currently convenor for Birdlife Australia on Queensland's Sunshine Coast and, as that suggests, he is keen on birding, bird conservation and encouraging others to learn about Australia's birdlife. He often leads birding walks and surveys and he loves sharing his passion for birds and all wildlife.

Ken grew up on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, a region of sub-tropical forests with rich diversity of species. As a teenager he found great interest in snakes and other reptiles, in addition to bird keeping, however he found a new passion in Birding while studying at the University of Queensland.

Ken is a high school teacher of English, Geography, and History and between times leads birding trips around Australia and Internationally. Birding has taken him to every continent except Antarctica.

He has led birding tours within Australia and to the United States, Canada, Taiwan, Malaysia and Borneo, India, Nepal, United Kingdom, Spain, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia, Costa Rica.  Ken continues to lead overseas birding tours and if you would like to learn about up and coming overseas birding tours please email him on
