Birding Specific Accommodation

 

Inala, Bruny Island.

All of Tasmania's 12 endemic bird species can be seen at INALA COUNTRY ACCOMMODATION. We offer cottage style accommodation on a lush 500 acre "Land for Wildlife" sanctuary near the South Bruny National Park on Bruny Island. In addition to Tasmania's special birds INALA is also home to a variety of wildlife and interesting plants. Owned by a birder and run for birders, this natural refuge is the home of birding/wildlife guide Tonia Cochran, and the base for Inala Nature Tours, a licensed birding/nature tour operator that have been designing and leading birding/nature tours in Australia for two decades.

Our guests have a choice of a lovely three bedroom cottage (Inala Cottage) or a one bedroom spa unit (Nairana Cottage). The cottages are nestled in tall eucalypt forest at the foot of the verdant South Bruny Ranges. The cottages have TV, DVD, broadband internet access, microwave oven, washing machine, clothes dryer, gas heating and electric blankets. They also have fully-equipped kitchens for self-catering, although meals can also be arranged on request. There are a number of walking tracks throughout the sanctuary accessing key habitats for birds and wildlife.

Our guests are encouraged to explore INALA during their visit and a complimentary bird list and map of the property are provided. In addition to the 12 endemic birds a further 90 species are found at INALA; 150 species have been recorded on Bruny Island. 80% of the sanctuary is native vegetation and we are committed to preserving and creating habitat for the Forty-spotted Pardalote and Swift Parrot, both endangered species. INALA is home to one of the largest known colonies of Forty-spotted Pardalote, and an important breeding area for the Swift Parrot and Grey Goshawk and these species, together with a large number of other birds are very likely to be found around your cottages. The best way to see the birds and wildlife on offer is to enjoy a guided tour of the property and/or Bruny Island.
