Adelaide area Birdwatching TourPrice from $465
A range of natural habitats can be found within a day's drive around Adelaide. In the summer, over 100 species of birds can be seen during a full day but even in winter it's still worthwhile going birdwatching with Southern Birding Services.
Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Adelaide and drive to the nearby hills. Wander between spectacular rugged ridges, gullies and seasonal waterfalls, looking for birds like Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo, Adelaide Rosella, lorikeets, many honeyeaters and robins. There is also a good chance you will see a Koala.
Visit an excellent wetland with many waterfowl, crakes and rails. Head out of the hills onto the drier Murray Plains, where a remnant of mallee/heath vegetation holds species such as Southern Scrub-robin, Shy Heathwren and Purple-gaped Honeyeater. Eat lunch on the shores of the Murray River while keeping an eye open for raptors such as Little Eagle, Wedge-tailed Eagle and Spotted Harrier.
Take a scenic route along the estuary of the Murray River, and in the surrounding freshwater marshes look for waterfowl, Little Grassbird, Golden-headed Cisticola and maybe even Cape Barren Goose. You will return to your accommodation around dusk.
