Home to over 400 species of birds, the Darwin region is a 'bird watchers' paradise. Join a bird watching tour, or grab a map and head out on your own.
Diverse habitats – the harbour, mangrove-lined creeks, billabongs, savannah woodlands and seasonal wetlands – nurture diverse migratory and endemic species.
Join throngs of birders from all over the world and take part in one of the region’s many dedicated bird watching tours, or stock up on maps and head out on your own.
Remember to keep to the marked tracks and obey all signage, we do have some unique critters in the Territory that don’t necessarily like to be disturbed.
In the dry season, you’ll be treated to a spectacular concentration of birds congregating around receding water sources, and after the big rains of the wet, you’ll witness the rivers, floodplains and billabongs come to life.
