Our region contains some of the best birdwatching locations in Central Western Queensland.

Whether you are a seasoned ornithologist or an amateur bird watcher there are over 200 different species of birds in our area to discover.

The best locations to see large numbers of birds are at our permanent watering holes which provide not only water for the birds but for several species, a habitat to live and breed in. The best time to go birdwatching is in the early morning and late evening when large numbers of birds come in to drink. You may also see large numbers of nectar eating birds in local flora when it is flowering.
