Birdwatching & Conservation Tour in East Gippsland, Australia
This 4-Day East Gippsland Wildlife & Conservation Tour is leisurely paced and available on set departure. Help the wildlife. Find koalas in magnificent stands of giant eucalypt forest, walk-in rainforest listening for lyrebirds, watch sea eagles soar along untouched ocean beaches, and spot huge goanna lizards beside secluded rivers and waterways.
East Gippsland is famous for its forest wildlife, particularly big mammals, birds, and reptiles. It is a fabulous place for parrots and cockatoos – they are numerous, visible, and noisy.
Your highly experienced wildlife guide will also show you where to look for wild wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas, parrots, cockatoos, black swans, and many other animals.
Help to conserve the beautiful places and wildlife you see. Spend a little time on a glorious beach removing fishing nets that trap fish, birds, and sea mammals. Along the coast and estuaries see Australian fur seals, white-bellied sea eagles, pelicans, gannets, cormorants, oystercatchers, and even a bottlenose dolphin.
Share this remote area with your experienced wildlife guide and each night return to the comforts of owner-operated lodge-style accommodation.
At the end of the journey, all participants will receive a certificate of thanks for helping wildlife, and the satisfaction of knowing they have given something back to the environments and animals visited. Birds are previously seen; king parrot, turquoise parrot, eastern & crimson rosella, gang-gang cockatoo, glossy-black cockatoo, top-knot pigeon, eastern whip bird, pilotbird, superb lyrebird, large-billed scrubwren, brown gerygone, black-faced monarch, olive-backed oriole, scarlet, Lewin’s & white-naped honeyeater, southern emu-wren, rose robin, azure & sacred kingfisher, hooded plover, little tern, eastern curlew, and sooty oystercatcher on this East Gippsland Wildlife tour.
