  Guided birding tours in the Greater Melbourne region



Birdlife Australia is a recent amalgamation of this country's two peak birding organisations - Birds Australia and  Bird Observation & Conservation Australia (BOCA, featuring such projects the Atlas of Australian Birds and The Woodland Birds for Biodiversity Project, as well as topics relating to bird conservation, recent bird sightings, threatened species, and membership information.
This is a database for unusual and interesting bird sightings and surveys.  It includes a link to Birdline Victoria, which has up-to-date news of recent sightings and reports in Victoria.  There is data also available on this website for sightings and surveys elsewhere throughout Australia and the world.

Observations, chat, important stuff and vigorous debate about everything to do with Australian birds. 
This is the website for Australian Ornithological Services, which operates from Deniliquin in southern NSW. Contact Philip & Patricia Maher for itineraries of upcoming trips, or chat to them about the birds you may wish to see in inland and northern Australia.
Lloyd Nielsen's Birding Australia is a comprehensive website promoting up to date information on books, publications and other relevant information for local and international birders .  Lloyd's book "Birding Australia" is an extensive directory that offers copious information on the what, how and where of Australian birding, and online shop has books, CDs and other products for sale.

Cassowary House is a small family run guest house which lies in the world heritage tropical rain forests of Far North Queensland, within 30 minutes drive of Cairns. It was established in 1985 as a guest-house for those with an interest in natural history, particularly birds, and was one of the first birding businesses to set up in Far North Queensland.  You have to stay at least one night with Sue & Phil Gregory, if for nothing else the incredible breakfast spread that Sue puts on. Oh and the birds are good too, especially the Southern Cassowary that are frequent visitors to the garden.  Phil also runs Sicklebill Safaris, and can tailor a birding trip to your needs, be it in the local environs, further afield in Australia or anywhere in the world.
