Kangaroo Island Birdwatching Tour, South Australia
This leisurely-paced 3-day Kangaroo Island Birding Tour is available as a set departure.
Lying off the coast of South Australia to the southwest of Adelaide, Kangaroo Island is the country's third-largest island and home to more than 250 species of birds. Aside from exploring the island's rich diversity of avian and mammal life, this Kangaroo Island tour visits the Bay of Shoals Sanctuary Zone and Busby Islet from the ocean.
The coastal settlement of American River is an excellent place to look out for Grey Currawongs, Little Corellas, Galahs, Black-faced Cuckoo-shrikes, Pied oystercatchers, Royal Spoonbills, Black Swans, White Ibis, Australian pelicans and Rufous Night Herons. Seal Bay is the area for raptors, including Wedge-tailed Eagles, Swamp Harriers, Australian Kestrels, Black-shouldered Kites, Collared Sparrowhawks, Brown Goshawks, and Brown Falcons. We also tour Cygnet Park, a significant rewilding project for the Glossy Black Cockatoo, and Remarkable Rocks, where you may lucky to glimpse Southern Emu-wrens and the rare Western Whipbird.
You can also expect encounters with many mammals on the Kangaroo Island tour, including Koalas, Short-beaked Echidnas, Tammar wallabies, Long-nosed Fur Seals, Bottlenose Dolphins and, of course the Kangaroos that give the island its name.
