Victoria River Region - Tropical Outback Northern Territory

Victoria River Region – Tropical Outback Northern Territory

Have you been dreaming of an outback birding adventure? Always wanted to explore the Northern Territory?
Want to see those rare and endemic species?
Well pack your bags and migrate to a birder’s paradise and make NT Bird Specialists part of your BIG year.


Our 1 to 10 day+ tours offer unique views of wildlife, cultural insights and brilliant photographic opportunities in iconic national parks and cultural landscapes of remote Australia.

Small and personal tours are led by our experienced, passionate and knowledgeable local guide, Luke Paterson and our award-winning team.
We use a comfortable four-wheel drive vehicle (maximum 4 adults / or 4 adults and 2 children) or people mover (maximum 6 or 8 adults). We can organise private groups of up to 11 guests or more.

NT Bird Specialists offer bird watching and photography tours (landscape and wildlife) around the Top End of the Northern Territory (NT) and the East Kimberley region in Western Australia (WA) and Cairns (Queensland). We can also arrange tours in Alice Springs region.
We find target species and special-interest birds and wildlife in the Darwin, Mary River, Kakadu and Pine Creek regions, and further a field in the Katherine, Victoria River, Timber Creek, Lake Argyle and Kununurra.

We visit many of the major habitats represented in tropical northern Australia and explore them by vehicle, on short walks and by boat, gently cruising along tropical rivers and Ramsar-listed wetlands. Covering the vast distances is worth while to maximise encounters with different species of birds and other wildlife.

A must-see destination on an NT Bird Specialists itinerary is the World Heritage Kakadu National Park.  Kakadu is home to over one third of Australia’s bird species and it is a hotspot for endemic plant and animal life. It is also famous for it’s living aboriginal cultures and ancient rock art!

If you would like to seek hard to find isolated species or increase your species lists, book on to an 9 or 10 day tour which travels west towards Western Australia and includes all the highlights of the Kakadu region.

You can find yourself great prices and like-minded friends when booking on group tours.
Our tours can be tailored to suit your specific requests, such as seeking out a wish list of birds, booking a privately chartered tour/group and when choosing your own adventure itineraries.

A reasonable level of fitness is required on our group tours. Ask us for more information.

Most of our itineraries depart and finish in Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, or Kakadu National Park, Australia. Please see our TOURS page for specific itineraries.

Our tours are fully accommodated and inclusive of all meals (alcoholic drinks are purchased at guest’s own expense).
We dine in natural bush settings and local restaurants.
