As the many keen birdwatchers who have done our trips can attest, bushwalking can give you a wonderful opportunity to see birds that you wouldn't be able to see elsewhere. On most trips, keen birdwatchers can happily spend hours watching the birds go about their business in their natural surroundings.

The photo of the rare black grasswren at left was taken on one of our Kimberley bushwalks.

Early risers almost always have the opportunity to do a bit of birdwatching before we head off for the day.

The long lunch and swim breaks give birdwatchers the chance to see the birds in the middle of the day.

On most trips, we will often arrive in camp not long after lunch allowing keen birdwatchers plenty of time to bring out their binoculars and have a look at what's going on around them.

The photos speak for themselves. You get beautiful campsites, wonderful scenery and an unparalleled opportunity to observe a variety of birds in their natural habitat.

Some of our birdwatching clients have provided us with lists of the birds they have seen on our trips. Here are a few lists which give a good indication of the number and kinds of birds you might see.

Once upon a time, we offered a couple of specialist birdwatching tours. Neither ever got off the ground so we dropped them. We would, however, be happy to do something similar as a charter if a group was interested. Our birdwatching tours were

Both trips were to be run as joint ventures with George Swann's Kimberley Birdwatching Tours.

If you are interested in birdwatching and visiting Darwin, you might want to consider combining one of our trips with a local specialist operator.

Finally, if you want an unbiased opinion on how birdwatching fits in with our tours, a couple of our keen birdwatching clients have given us permission to allow others to contact them to discuss what it was like. Please give us a call or send us an email if you'd like to talk to one of these people.
