Trip Planning

Choosing the Right Tour For You
We are more than happy to discuss suitable tour options that you may choose from, or cater to special requests on a private chartered tour.
You will need to have a reasonable level of fitness to cope with bush walking and short stairs-like climbs on walking tracks, as well as being outside in warm to hot and humid conditions for extended periods of time.

Group sizes and other tours we use

NT Bird Specialists run personalised birdwatching and photography tours with unique cultural insights in the packaged experiences. To keep the service personalised, groups sizes remain small, usually 2-4 or 5-8 passengers in a comfortable 4WD or modern mini-bus. We may form part of larger groups when travelling on boat cruises operated by our preferred suppliers. Chartered boat cruises are available on request.
If larger groups wish to book, please contact us for a quote. Our tours require a two or four guest minimum payment to depart (depending on itinerary).


Tour types

There are different kinds of birdwatchers and nature-lovers and luckily, we can cater to all types.
