2021 Katherine Bird Festival

Katherine hosted its inaugural Bird Festival in 2018 and has fast become an annual event.

The event offers many activities centered around the vulnerable Gouldian Finch. Previous years have conducted bird counts to aid research, community groups have built and painted bird boxes and expert-guided walks have led many guests to proclaim ‘Wow! That’s the first Gouldian I’ve seen in the wild!’.

Other activities intended for 2021 include bird-watching cruises, expert led morning, afternoon and nocturnal bird watching activities, information sessions and family-friendly loaded fun.

This Bird Festival is not to be missed – it's on the way to becoming one of Australia’s premier birding events. This bird watchers haven won’t remain a secret for long so, save the date today and check the Facebook page for event and program updates.
