Dr Greg Clancy runs a professional ecological consultancy and bird-wildlife guiding business based at Coutts Crossing, near Grafton, on the NSW North Coast. Bird guiding and tour sites are mainly within the Clarence Valley and Coffs Coast area but more extended trips are available to see the wildlife of western NSW at places such as Sturt, Mutawintji and Kinchega National Parks. Greg has a current Parks Eco Pass covering many of the national parks in northern and western NSW. The north coast of NSW is one of the most biodiverse areas in Australia being a place where the southern (Bassian) flora and fauna species overlap with the northern (Torresian) floras and fauna species. Greg also has a knowledge of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and plants in addition to his vast experience with birds. The great biodiversity of the area means that a species list of over 100 species of birds in one day is usual, even in the cooler months. Trips to target the more difficult species can also be arranged, where quality, rather than quantity is the object. Spotlighting tours to the Washpool National Park are offered as are tours to enjoy the fauna and flora of local wetlands, rainforests, dry open forest, estuaries and beaches.
Access to the area is by plane to Grafton or Coffs Harbour airports, train to Grafton City Railway Station or road via the Pacific Highway from Sydney or Brisbane.
