Darwin is a paradise for bird watchers with over 400 species of birds. From habitats such as mangrove-lined creeks, billabongs, savannah woodlands and seasonal wetlands, you can find a vast range of birds around Darwin.
Unique character of birds around Darwin
Farewell the Shorebird will start at north-western car park of East Point Reserve. You can view this spectacular annual event and participate in the identification of the migratory birds by using the free Aussie Backyard Bird Count App.
Don't forget to wear sturdy shoes as you will need to complete a short walk to watch the shorebirds. You might see great knots, greater sand plovers and far eastern curlews along the way. Bring binoculars and plenty of water and wear sun-smart/insect-smart clothing. Try not to disturb or feed any of wildlife. Light refreshments will be provided.
Please contact Conservation Volunteers Australia for registration or for further information on telephone number (08) 8981 3206 or visit their website.
If you cant make it for this event, you still can do bird watching any time in Darwin on the Darwin Birding Trail.
