Overview

Our birding and wildlife extension to our Eastern Australia birding tour takes us to the island of Tasmania in search of several extremely localized endemic species, including Tasmanian Nativehen, Yellow Wattlebird, Green Rosella and Dusky Robin. This Australia birding tour offers an excursion to Bruny Island that will hopefully also provide us with Forty-spotted Pardalote, Black Currawong, Scrubtit and maybe even the nocturnal Tasmanian Devil!

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.

Erik Forsyth went above and beyond to give personal attention to each participant. How does he do it? Lack of sleep and a packed itinerary would challenge the best guide, but he seems to always be positive and light-hearted. Cracking dry jokes and comments – loved it!

We enjoyed travelling with Steve Davidson. He is very knowledgeable and more than willing to assist anyone with getting on birds, and he takes time to explain where the bird is.

Erik Forsyth did a great job, and both his remarkable knowledge and his unflagging good humor were indispensable; I look forward to traveling with him again in the future.

Erik Forsyth is a wonderful guy, so enjoyable to travel with. He is knowledgeable, down to earth and quite humorous! We did New Zealand with Erik a few years ago and would definitely go with him on other Rockjumper Trips in the future. Also, we would recommend Erik to others considering him as their leader.

Steve Davidson was great! Kept the tour together and made sure everyone was engaged, enjoyed themselves, and saw everything. Very personable and genuinely cared about everyone's happiness. Plus, he was great finding the birds.
