Bird Watching with NPAQ
Eastern Reef Egret
On Sunday 22nd of February the National Parks Association of Queensland (NPAQ) will be hosting a bird watching day at Bribie Island. At this time of year wading birds are fattening up ready for the winter migration. There will also be the chance to view species of bush birds that inhabit the area.
The day will be led by knowledgeable bird watcher and experienced group leader Ian Peacock and will start early before too many other people or dogs are about that may disturb the birds.
Bring a chair, sun protection, binoculars, insect repellent, rain clothes and some morning tea and lunch.
The track is easy and the cost is $3.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members.
Anyone is welcome but booking is necessary and numbers are limited so give Ian a call or email to let him know you will be coming along. Ph: 0416943280 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The group will meet a 7:00am at Buckley's Hole at the south-west corner of the island (details below).
About the NPAQ
The NPAQ describes its activities as: "campaigning and lobbying for the preservation of existing National Parks in their natural condition and the reservation of new areas identified as deserving National Park status".
The NPAQ have been pursuing this agenda since inception in 1930 and have, throughout their history, successfully contributed to the establishment and protection of the current Queensland National Park estate.
NPAQ has an active calendar which brings people together to enjoy national parks through bushwalking, camping, boat trips, guest speakers and a range of events and social activities. It's also a great way to volunteer some time to national park maintenance or other programs run by the association.
