Morning Highlights

The morning highlights tour takes you to habitats rich in bird life in Darwin.

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, various finch species and the Spangled Drongo.
