During this exciting Australian birding tour we will cover an incredible range of habitats travelling across the eastern portion of the country, including lush expanses of dense tropical rainforest to the dry endless stretches of the desolate outback. We will encounter a fantastic collection of endemic birds and incredible mammals. After a day at the coast exploring the magnificent riches of the Great Barrier Reef we will explore northern Queensland, in search of Victoria’s Riflebird from the bird-of-paradise family, Tooth-billed Bowerbird, rare Golden Bowerbird, Beach Stone-curlew, and the outrageous Southern Cassowary! Later on we continue to the world-famous Lamington NP in search of Superb Lyrebird, Australian King Parrots and the strikingly plumaged Regents Bowerbird. Flying south we stop in at Sydney for a pelagic trip, before birding into the interior for several dry-country birds, including the strange Plains-wanderer, much sought after Malleefowl, endangered Regent Honeyeater, and a plethora of colourful parrots including Galah, Gang-gang Cockatoo, Red-tailed Black Cockatoo and Long-billed Corella.
