Birding Tours Australia
Australia’s Local and Offshore
Wildlife and Birdwatching Specialists
Australia has about 900 endemic/migratory species and our tour area is home to over 300 of these at different times of the year. Our 1 or 2 day tours are an excellent way of seeing many of Australia’s unique bird species.
Birding Tours Australia operates several specific trips around Newcastle, The Hunter Valley and Sydney. Newcastle sits just north of Sydney and is surrounded by easily accessible and superb birding habitat once you’ve escaped the Sydney city area. We can also organise custom tours around New South Wales, anywhere in Australia or in fact anywhere in our local part of the world (PNG, Solomons, Lesser Sundas, New Britain & New Ireland). Our customised tours in recent years have ranged from 1 day to 6 weeks. No Australian bird is too hard for us to look for. Whether you need to see specific Australian endemics or families we can organise your logistics and itinerary without fuss. We can even organise a private Night Parrot search if you’re dedicated enough!
We also specialise in Australia’s offshore territories and conduct tours to Christmas Island, Cocos-keeling Islands, North Keeling, Lord Howe and Norfolk as well as the Torres Strait Islands of Boigu and Saibai, as well as several pelagic trips.
Explore our Tours
All our tours can be conducted at a pace to suit your needs from relaxed to extreme, but all will concentrate on locating as many species as possible across various habitats.
Meet your Guides
Your tour guides are well known Australian birders Richard Baxter & Phil Hansbro. They are both young (relatively!!!), fit & very knowledgeable about the local birds. They are extremely friendly, helpful & approachable.
