‘Twitchers’ and lovers of Australia’s outback wildlife are invited to witness some of the world’s most exotic bird life during Kakadu Bird Week from 14 – 21 October, 2015.
Kakadu is a birdwatcher’s paradise, with the majestic landscape providing a home for over one third of Australia’s bird species. ‘Twitchers’ (as birdwatchers are known) will be able to view woodland birds in the tropical savannah, water birds gracing the region’s famed billabongs, and hear the sounds of richly voiced birds ringing across majestic sandstone escarpments.
For the keenest bird spotters, there will be long treks in the sandstone country to search for white-throated grass wrens and other endemic birds. For the beginners, there will be small interactive groups helping to identify different bird species.
