On the March/April and September courses we can see up to 150 species in a 70 kilometre radius and some days 25 species of shorebird are added to the evening bird call. The banding courses are an ideal way to get hands experience in the field and cover mist-netting of passerine birds as well as cannon-netting shorebirds. The courses cover the best that Broome has to offer accompanied by knowledgeable guides and field researchers.
Private tours of 2 and up to 18 people can be accommodated (dependent on requirements and habitats). Two hour tours, day excursions and group itineraries can be arranged. Accommodation on site before and after your itinerary is also available, with Roebuck Bay just a minute from your door.

Bird Tours Australia
We are based in the Hunter Valley (on the east coast of New South Wales, 2 hours from Sydney International Airport) though are able to arrange extended tours that take in the many unique birding areas around Australia, including the Top End, South-west WA, Queensland Wet Tropics, the arid interior and Tasmania. These are just examples of places we can take you – please tell us what you wish to see and we will customise an itinerary to suit you at very competitive prices.
With over 330 endemic species of birds, Australia is a country not be missed for seeing unique birds found nowhere else on Earth. Indeed, Australia is considered a world ‘hotspot’ of endemism, not only in terms of birds, but in biodiversity in general (for example Australia ranks as the country with the most endemic reptiles and mammals and second in terms of birds – only Indonesia ranks higher).
Keep in mind that we are not restricted to just birdwatching tours - we are able to show you many unique facets of the Australian environment. Please take a look around our website and feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
