Our tours are not too strenuous. Much of the birding takes place near or from the vehicle. Our longest hikes are approximately 2km (1.25 miles) and we will travel at your pace.
What should I bring?
Please bring a hat, sunscreen, sturdy shoes and a sense of adventure. If you have a spare pair of shoes which you don’t mind getting wet, please bring these.
Are food and drinks supplied?
On the Full Day tour, lunch and tea/coffee will also be provided. We will try and meet your dietary requirements.
How much walking is involved?
We try and park as close to the sites as possible. There is walking involved and the occasional hill. If you are relatively fit and healthy, there won't be a problem.
Do you cater to disabled customers?
Much as we would like to, most of the routes and sites involve a degree of walking. None of these areas are wheelchair friendly.
What binoculars do you recommend?
Get a sturdy pair of modern binos. I use the Bushnell Legend 10x 42 for my customers. They are light with good optics and really easy to use. Retail cost is around $300.
Which bird book is best?
The most recent bird book is The Australian Bird Guide, published by the CSIRO. Although not portable in the field, I keep it in the car for reference. Retail $50
Are there any bird apps?
Yes, there are a few for Australian birds. My personal choices are:
Morcombe and Stewart, Australian Birds
Pizzey and Knight, Birds of Australia
Merlin Bird ID
