Tour Description

The south-west corner of Western Australia is one of the most bird-rich areas in the country. Our 7 day, 7 night fully accommodated tour begins and ends in Perth (WA) and takes in a range of habitats including wetlands, open woodlands, sandy heathlands, the Stirling Ranges and tall karri forest. This is a very pleasant area to be birding in with mild weather, good infrastructure yet a sense of adventure remains.
