Information about the BBO provided by Birds Australia.




Broome Bird Observatory ( BBO) is located on the north-west coast of Australia on the shores of the stunning Roebuck Bay. It is 25 km east of Broome, WA, and 2400 km north of Perth. The Broome region is regarded as the most significant viewing site for shorebirds in Australia, and among the top four in the world. It has the greatest diversity of shorebirds species of any site on the planet and more than 800,000 birds visiting the area annually. BBO was established by Birds Australia in 1988 as a centre for research and education with the aim of working for the conservation of migratory shorebirds which visit Roebuck Bay along with many endemic birds of Broome.
