Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Begin your day with songs from the rainforest
Early mornings is usually the best time of the day to enjoy the collective sounds of many of the Sunshine Coast rainforest birds, within the sub-tropical rainforest of the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. With a little patience, these gorgeously colourful feathered wonders of Nature can be closely observed.

If you're a keen birdwatcher or perhaps just an early bird, the Sunshine Coast Council is inviting you to join the Sunshine Coast chapter of BirdLife Australia for a Breakfast with the Birds: Guided Bird Walk through the spectacular natural jewel of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve.

The Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve is a natural bird sanctuary and provides a home to hundreds of species of birds, including the spectacular Paradise Riflebird, the Noisy Pitta and the striking Regent Bowerbird.

The Breakfast with the Birds: Guided Bird Walks are limited to twelve people per walk, so as to maximise the opportunity of actually spotting one of the local 'stars' of this remnant rainforest. Don't forget to bring along a pair of binoculars. Tickets are only $5.50 and booking is absolutely essential.
