Birdwatching Tours Melbourne
Melbourne Birding Tours specialises in taking birders out from Melbourne to see the large number of species that can be seen in a variety of habitats close to Melbourne. They personalise each tour to suit the needs of their guests from the species they wish to see and to pace they wish to go at. Birding tours range from one day tours upto five days with each sighting bringing new details, new behaviour and new thrills.
While birding is the focus of the birdwatching tours they often see much more than birds. Melbourne Birding Tours take their guests to truly wild places to see wonderful Australian birds as they are meant to be seen. As well as the birdlife guests will see many other animals which provide ecotourists with a complete Australian wildlife experience.
Melbourne Birding Tour can customise birdwatching tours to target particular species whether it be an overnight tour or multi-day birding adventure, they can design a tour to suit your birding requirements.
Melbourne Birding Tours are lead by Paul Hackett as the owner and lead guide. Paul has been birding seriously for over 12 years and has packed a lot into those years. Constant reading, doing research in the field and making conservation his full time job.
Paul has assisted in local research birding projects – Black-eared miner, Orange-bellied parrot and other conservation projects in the Grampians, Otway National Park, Nova Scotia Canada and worked over seven years as a volunteer wildlife rescuer and educator.
His interests expand beyond the ornithological, with extensive knowledge in local Australian wildlife and history, making your birding experience in the Melbourne area extra special.
