Melbourne Birding Tours

Passing through four different habitats including coastal, wetland, farmland and forest, Melbourne Birding Tours have designed the Four Habitats Birdwatching Tour so you can bird-watch many species in one day.

The perfect tour for the beginner, photographer and the serious birder, you will be visiting areas with a high density of species so there is no need to rush around and have time to see, photograph and learn about each bird.

7am is the best time to leave however, later pick-up times may be arranged. Travelling 40 minutes to the South-West of Melbourne to the magnificent You Yangs Regional Park. The habitat here is classified as a dry eucalyptus forest and is very easy to walk through. The park is filled with honeyeaters, parrots, cockatoos and whistlers.

From here you will travel across farmland to the Western Treatment Plant at Werribee. This internationally recognised RAMSAR listed site is considered to be one of the best birding locations in Australia. No matter what time of the year high numbers of species are found within the property. It is a mecca for shorebirds, waterfowl, raptors and seabirds. Birding at it's best.

Tour routes may be altered on days of high bushfire risk.
