    Trip reports          Key species
    Southern Australia is home to almost 500 species of birds. Habitats range from the dry red interior to lush, green eucalypt forests, and also include riverine wetlands and floodplains; mangroves and estuaries; the Murray River; vast expanses of the semi-arid mallee scrubland; and outback deserts with spectacular mountain ranges.

    Many rare and unique bird species are found here, including some highly endangered, sensitive or endemic species.

    Southern Birding Services, operating out of Adelaide, are the leading bird guiding experts in this part of Australia, having offered guiding and tours to these areas and their birds for many years. We offer:
  • Expert bird guiding in South Australia and beyond, whether it's for a few hours, a full day, or multiple days;
  • Scheduled and customised birding tours;
  • The option to develop tailor-made itineraries of any length, to suit your individual needs.Contact us

  • This website aims to assist birders to make the most of their visit to the area. We not only offer quality guided birding tours but at the same time provide the independent birder with up-to-date information. See you soon!
