Birdwatching tours around Oceania with a local Birdingpal guide
If you are you an independent birdwatcher, who does not care for large group tours, then Birdingpaltours is for you
Our tours are flexible, safe and the use of a local guide lets you participate in the planning
A local guide knows all the hotspots and you get the most out of your trip
You select the date and length for a trip to suit youself
If your time is limited, we'll design a tour to fit your needs
A professional Birdingpal guide can customize your tour, and you will see the birds you want.
Your guide is also your travel companion, who will make sure you experience the native people, scenery, culture, history and food, first hand.
You will enjoy the advantage of all the attention you get in a small group, for the same price or perhaps even less, than you will pay if you travel with the large tour groups from other countries
Remember, the next time you travel, you do not have to miss the birdwatching if your partner or travel companions are non birders; a local guide is flexible, and will easily accommodate other needs too
Hiring a Birdingpal guide will boost the local economy and help protect birds other wildlife and their habitat
You will be picked up from your accommodation in Adelaide early in the morning. We will follow the coast north, where we look for the rosinae race of Slender-billed Thornbill and the rosina race of White-browed Scrubwren. At Port Augusta we visit the Arid Lands Botanical Gardens where we will encounter our first White-winged Fairy-wren, Chirruping Wedgebill, Rufous Fieldwren and Redthroat. A nearby coastal lake usually has Banded Stilt. We will arrive at Mt Lyndhurst, on the edge of the Strzelecki desert, later in the day and will search for Chestnut-breasted Whiteface, another SA endemic, as well as Inland Dotterel, Cinnamon Quail-thrush, Chirruping Wedgebill and Rufous Fieldwren. We stand a good chance of finding our second species of Grasswren here, Thick-billed Grasswren.
At sunset we proceed to the Lyndhurst Hotel, a typical outback pub with basic facilities but lots of character. Overnight Lyndhurst (basic, clean rooms with shared bathroom facilities; Meals included: L, D).
