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!
Please note that a Rockjumper leader may not accompany this tour unless a minimum of 9 participants are signed up. In the case of insufficient sign-ups, a professional and very experienced local guide will lead the tour instead.
