Capertee Valley 3 Day Tour.
Only 3 hours from Sydney. Various bush habitats. Fully catered including accommodation at the Capertee Cottage in the heart of the valley. Expect to see 100+ species.
Mike Barrow is a passionate birder. Originally from the UK, Mike has lived in Australia for the past 30 years and is one of the leading birders in Sydney's Northern Beaches. In 2020 Mike saw/heard 426 species of birds in NSW, the second highest number in ebird history.
We cater to birders of every level. Whether you are new to birding or are a serious twitcher, we can provide a tour to suit your birding needs. Tours run all year as Sydney’s climate is excellent. Alternative locations are catered for on request (Royal National Park, Capertee Valley).
I attended a tour to the Capertee Valley with Mike recently which was fantastic. Mike's extraordinary knowledge of birds and the magnificent location combined to make this a memorable and enjoyable day. Thoroughly recommended.

I really enjoyed bird watching with Mike in the morning was fascinating I saw many interesting and different types of birds. We started on the beach we covered rocky terrain and later entered some forested areas. I am new to bird watching I have a lot to learn regarding the different species but Mike gave me a sound introduction. Mike was very observant and he has plenty of knowledge of birds. I learned a lot from his tour and also I discovered some areas of Sydney that I have never been to. Highly recommended half day tour! Thanks Mike.

Fantastic bird tour ,really enjoyed the morning Mike is very knowledgeable and great guide. We were supplied with binoculars for the tour and Mike followed up with brilliant photographs and list of the birds we saw - all in our own backyard of the northern beaches. A guided bird tour has been on my to do list for years and would throughly recommend Mike as a guide - Just loved the experience.

We joined the Beaches to Wetlands tour and had a wonderful time. Mike was a great guide with a wealth of local knowledge and we spotted over 50 species. The three habitats reflected the diversity of bird life throughout the Northern Beaches of Sydney. A highly recommended half day tour!

A friend of mine and me had pleasure of doing this tour with Mike. We had the best time and saw a lot of birds, including some new ones for me despite birdwatching in Sydney all my life! Mike's ability to not only hear and spot the birds, but get brilliant photos of them is first class. The Binoculars he provides are quality units and make it a lot easier to spot the smaller or distant birds. He has a lot of knowledge about the targets and their calls, habits and likely places to look for them. I would definitely recommend the tour to birdwatchers of any degree of experience.
Mike is so knowledgeable and took all the time we needed to really appreciate over 40 birds, explaining their uniqueness. He took amazing photos of every bird and sent them to us. A gorgeous day starting in the Aussie bush, to the wetlands and then the coast . Loved it
Stunning valley and tour. Mike’s superb knowledge and keen ear makes for very successful spotting and identification. He is an excellent photographer as well, capturing the photo’s that are very difficult to get. I would highly recommend Aussie Birding Tours for anyone interested in the exquisite birdlife on our doorstep.”
He is a great guide and knows his stuff.
