The full day encounter takes you to habitats rich in bird life within Darwin as well as venturing beyond to Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve and the surrounding wetlands.

You'll visit a monsoon rainforest in search of the endemic Rainbow Pitta and the colourful Rose-crowned Fruit-Dove, the coastal foreshores in search of shorebirds, the Sacred Kingfisher and Brahminy Kite.

The mangroves are home of the Red-headed Honeyeater, the Collared Kingfisher and Chestnut Rail and in the wetlands a variety of water birds including the iconic Black necked Stork (Jabiru) may be seen. In the savannah woodland watch for the Forest Kingfisher and the endangered Gouldian Finch.
