Often referred to as “The Land Down Under”, Australia offers birders a multitude of habitats to explore. In the Northern Territory there are rainforests, woodlands, wetlands, savanna, desert and the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. Thanks to this diversity, there is also a huge diversity of birds and wildlife. From the tiny, colorful Lovely Fairy Wren to the massive Cassowary standing nearly 6 feet and looking more like a dinosaur, birds are everywhere!
As we bird we will not ignore the beautiful landscapes and the unique wildlife that roam them. Huge crocodiles hunt in the Yellow Waters. Mammals of many shapes, sizes, like the tiny Echidna and the cuddly Koala… and the very odd Platypus may be seen.
From a boat rides through river forests and along the Great Barrier Reef to a Sky Tram ride over the rainforest we will explore, enjoy and stand in awe as we observe some of Australia’s best birding opportunities!
