Darwin Bird Watching with Experience the Wild Tours

One of the unique things about Darwin is the accessibility to wildlife. No other Australian capital city has as much unspoiled and intact habitat so close to the city centre.

Most areas we visit include several habitats, such as monsoon forest, savannah woodland, mangroves and wetlands, all in close proximity. This increases the likelihood of seeing a great variety of birdlife, and other animals, in a relatively small area. Birds, mammals, butterflies, lizards, crocs, turtles and frogs are all on the target list when you are in the field with me.

Whether you are a visiting birder and would like to obtain a large list of sightings, or perhaps even a local who would like to better understand the natural history of Darwin and recognise the birds, we would like to take you with us on one of our local field trips.

Our half-day tours (7am - 12pm; 2pm - 7pm) are $95 and include morning or afternoon tea, cold water is provided and even binoculars for those who may not have their own.

The full day tour (7am - 7pm) is $180 and includes morning tea, light lunch and afternoon tea. Our 4WD vehicle is air-conditioned and takes a maximum of six passengers, so you are guaranteed a trip that is personalised to your expectations.

Pick-up and drop-off to accommodation is included. Multi-day trips to Kakadu, Katherine and Litchfield - POA.

We have all the necessary permits and insurance for our activities.
