Christmas Island

Christmas Island's National Park in the Indian Ocean is so unique and diverse it is often called Australia's Galapagos by many naturalists.

The "Christmas Island Airforce" (as the multitudes of birds are nicknamed), keep the locals company, swooping and gliding on the up drafts over the cliffs of the settlement with the Indian Ocean as their backdrop. Many species are quite inquisitive and birdwatchers can be rewarded with some truly special sightings

The island is large enough to have developed its own unique rainforest ecology, with seven of the thirteen land birds being endemic to the island. Expect to see the rarest and largest booby bird in the world, the Abbott's Booby as well as the elegant Golden Bosun and Silver Bosun, the endangered Christmas Island Goshawk, the Greater Frigatebird and the rarer and slightly larger Christmas Island Frigatebird. Others include Christmas Island Thrush, the Brown Booby, Christmas Island Swiftlets and the Christmas Island Imperial Pigeon.

Christmas Island also boasts world class diving, snorkelling and fishing in crystal clear waters. The Island has a diverse cultural make up that is reflected in the number of temples scattered around the island and in the rich range of dining experiences.

Christmas Island boasts a range of accommodation from lodge style and self-catering to hotels/mini resorts.

Gondwana Connection GONDWANA CONNECTION Wildlife Tours 

GONDWANA CONNECTION Wildlife Tours offer a number of trip options to get out there and experience the wonderful diversity of wildlife to be found within the southern areas of Western Australia.

Regardless of how long you have to explore this region, we have a tour to suit. Whether it is a single day, three days or six days, there are various options available. The tours of three days or more, allow for the opportunity to pick up all of the SW Endemic Birds except the Western Ground Parrot. You just need to give us some initial guidance of what you are looking for and we will put together a special personal experience.

The majority of what we do is land based, but during February and March, there is the option to include a one day cruise into a three or six day tour. This will allow participants to experience what is believed to be the largest congregation of Orca (Killer Whales) in the Southern Hemisphere. This obviously exposes us to a nice little introduction to the pelagic bird species of the Southern Ocean. For those with varied interests!

Our Full Day Tours from Perth accommodation houses are primarily for the birders and with approximately 200 species to be found close to Perth, we can normally tick between 60 & 80 species for the day. This list could include 11 of the 16 south-west endemics. With the striking Western Rosella, the gregarious Short-billed Black Cockatoo and of course the elusive Red-eared Firetail all being desirable targets.

Given the varied habitats within this area, we will tailor each day's itinerary to cover your personal interests. On the other hand you can allow us to present an overview of our local environs and the remarkable variety of inhabitants within.

We also do day trips to the Dryandra State Forest allowing for a much different selection of bird species. This involves 2hrs travel each way. All tours are carried out personally by owner/operator Des Hume.

We offer a wide range of tours from 3 hours to 14 days and are happy to tailor a tour to suit your specific requirements.
Extended Tours:
These tours range from 2 to 14 days or longer throughout the Kimberley region. Most trips involve camping in the bush, but if preferred accommodation is available at Cattle Station Homesteads. To the south The Great Sandy Desert, characterized by red sand dunes and spinifex grasslands. To the north and almost surrounding the Kimberley an ancient barrier reef. In side this natural boundary lie huge escarpments, plateaux and rugged ranges that are dominated by open savannah woodland.

Large creeks and rivers are lined by huge melaleucas and eucalypts. Small pockets of rainforests survive in areas that provide the right conditions. The rivers flowing north have cut dramatic gorges and falls over sandstone
escarpments where they flow into flooded river valleys lined with mangroves.
The diverse habitats of the Kimberley make birdwatching challenging and exceptional with species such as Gouldian Finch, Purple-crowned Fairy-wren, Red Goshawk, Rainbow Pitta, Northern Rosella, Rufous Owl, Sandstone
Shrike-thrush, White-lined Honeyeater, Chestnut-backed Button- quail and of course not forgetting the Kimberley endemic, the Black Grasswren.

As well as our land based tours with 4WD, we can arrange boat charters discovering the remote Kimberley coastline and islands, air charters for those who wish to visit most areas but are short on time. We also conduct 8 day pelagic trips to Ashmore Reef ex Broome. In 2002 the dates are 14 - 21 October. The choices are endless.

Interstate Tour Operators visiting Western Australia

Australasian Ornithological Services Pty Ltd
Australian Ornithological Services (formerly Inland Bird Tours) started in Deniliquin in the southern Riverina area of N.S.W. 15 years ago.
The main focus of those tours was the Plains-wanderer. While the Plains-wanderer is still our flagship species we have increased our repertoire to include all States of Australia and New Zealand, specialising in difficult skulkers and nocturnal birds.
We are the inland specialists for serious birders. We endeavour to ensure that the whole group see the birds and not just a lucky few.

Tour leader, Philip Maher, is interested in all aspects of natural history.

Small and personal tours are led by our experienced, passionate and knowledgeable guides. We use modern four-wheel drive vehicles (maximum 4 adults / or 4 adults and 2 children) and small people-mover vehicles (up to 12 guests).

We visit many of the major habitats represented in tropical northern Australia and explore them by vehicle, on short walks and by boat, gently cruising along tropical rivers and Ramsar-listed wetlands. Covering the vast distances is worth while to maximise encounters with different species of birds and other wildlife.

A must-see destination on an NT Bird Specialists itinerary is the World Heritage Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is home to over one third of Australia's bird species and it is a hotspot for endemic plant and animal life. It is also famous for it's living aboriginal cultures and ancient rock art!

You can find yourself great discounts when booking on to a fixed date tour or an 'open group' tour that has more than two people.
OR
Where possible, our tours can be tailored to suit your specific requests, such as seeking out a wish list of birds, booking a privately chartered tours/group and when choosing your own adventure itineraries.
