Birdlife Australia, North Queensland Group (BA-NQG)
Is a regional group of the national organisation Birds Australia, formally known as the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union (RAOU). The BA-NQG area covers Queensland north of Giru to the Torres Strait Islands and west to the border with the Northern Territory. Regional representatives are based in Townsville, Western Queensland, Cairns, Atherton Tableland, Mossman/Daintree and Cape York Peninsula.

A newsletter, Contact Call, is issued four times a year and regular field trips are organized at least once a month in the various regions. We have campouts at least twice a year where the emphasis is on fun as well as worthwhile projects which cater for all levels of expertise from beginner to professional.

If you are concerned about the future of Australia’s wild birds and their habitats then you should join Birds Australia. You can participate in our activities and research projects that have a real impact on the conservation of our birds. Alternatively, you can just enjoy Australia’s best bird magazine Wingspan, in the knowledge that your subscription is hard at work safeguarding our beautiful birds.

Toowoomba Bird Observers Inc.
Serves birders and visitors to the Darling Downs and south-west. The club was established in 1975 to promote the enjoyment of the region’s bird and to stimulate serious ornithological research throughout the area. The city’s position on the very edge of the Great Dividing Range enables Toowoomba birdwatchers to enjoy birding on both the eastern and western sides of the Great Dividing Range.

Regular club outings on the last weekend of each month take advantage of this location to access both inland and coastal species. Visitors to the area are always welcome to participate in these outings, or to contact club members for assistance at other times of the month.

The club, which is affiliated with the Bird Observers Club of Australia, publishes an interesting and informative monthly Newsletter and participates in numerous local and national projects.
