This two day tour with Melbourne Birding Tours explores Chiltern - Mt Pilot National Park, one of the best remaining examples of Box-ironbark Forest.

The area is regarded as one of the best birding sites in the country and is home to some of the most exciting birds in Australia.

Birds such as the stunningly beautiful Turquoise Parrot, the endangered Regent Honeyeater, Mistletoebird, White-browed Babbler, Speckled Warbler and Painted Honeyeater. As well as the birds, you may also encounter mammals and reptiles as well; it is an area which we are sure you will love.
