We offer a wide selection of scheduled tours with regular departures and fully customisable privately guided tours of any duration. We specialise in difficult-to-find bird species and off-the-beaten track locations while not omitting the popular birding areas. We can adjust any scheduled itinerary into a private tour to suit your wish-list and we are also happy to design a custom guided birding tour from scratch for you. Our tours are led by our passionate and experienced professional bird guides and with the help of local experts.
We cater to all types of birders; may it be beginners, serious birders, bird photographers or for those who are travelling for leisure. We provide assistance in arranging your accommodation, food, transportation, birding/photography equipment hire, and almost everything else you’ll need to make your trip a success. Our team of expert tour guides and office staff will extend to make the most of your trip. We hope to see you soon on one of our birding trips!
Oreoica is the genus name of the Crested Bellbird after which our company has been named and our logo modelled. The Crested Bellbird is widespread in low numbers throughout the drier interior areas of Australia, particularly in dry woodlands from where its distinct call can be heard. Singing from an exposed perch, its bell-like call, with ventriloquial qualities, consists of two-three slow notes followed by two-three fast notes, and can unmistakably be heard from over half a kilometre away.
Taxonomically the Crested Bellbird has been placed in the Old World warbler family Oreoicidae, a “wastebasket taxon” used for birds of which the exact affinities are unknown. The aboriginal name, panpanpanella, is reflective of its cowbell-like voice, as is its early European name, dick-dick-the-devil.
A proportion of our profits will be donated to the Oreoica Fund, Bellbird’s environmental fund from where donations to worthwile bird research and conservation projects are made. Grasswren research, conservation of threatened habitats, and threatened bird monitoring are some of the projects we’re interested in.
