Birds of Hattah Kulkyne and Murray Sunset Tour (8 days)

Birdwatching in the Mallee environment of north west Victoria is very rewarding and brings species of birds more commonly associated with the arid inland of Australia. Proximity to the Murray River also adds waterbirds to the variety of birdlife.

Sand dunes, spinifex and low mallee eucalypts are typical of some areas, but there are

also saltbush plains, salt and freshwater lakes and rivers. There will be some interesting history to discover and spring wildflowers to add colour, but as a dedicated birdwatching trip, expect birds to be the focus of activities.

With a cosy bed every night, this fully accommodated tour allows you to enjoy birdwatching in comfort. The days are leisurely as we travel through both Hattah Kulkyne and Murray Sunset National Parks taking advantage of any opportunity for some birdwatching. This will be a small personalised group of only four participants to maximise your birdwatching experiences.

You do not need to be an experienced birder, novice birdwatchers who would like the chance to gain some experience and learn more about birds and birdwatching are enthusiastically welcomed. Your guide, Jenny, is passionate about birds of this region and is keen to share her love of mallee birdlife with you.

Tour highlights:
  • Pink Lakes, Murray Sunset National Park
    Imagine birdwatching with the magnificent Pink Lakes of Murray Sunset National Park as a backdrop. With a variety of habitats nearby we enjoy quite a nice range of species including some very arid country birds. There is no rush on this tour, plenty of time to wander quietly and share our experiences with the birds we encounter.
  • Hattah Lakes
    The Hattah Lakes are the centre point of Hattah Kulkyne National Park and provide a great contrast to the dry sand dunes and mallee woodland nearby. Wandering quietly along the shores of the lakes or amongst flooded eucalypts nearby, we usually encounter a lovely range of wetland birds. Even when the lakes are drying out the shallow water attracts waders. Many bush birds are drawn to these watering holes too. Expect some lovely serene time spent quietly observing birds and enjoying the landscapes at the same time.
