Observatories – Birds Australia

Chris Merkord

List of bird observatories run by Birds Australia.


The tradition of bird observatories in Australia began when Birds Australia established its first observatory at Eyre, on the Nullarbor Plain, in an abandoned telegraph station in 1977. Since then, other observatories have sprung up around the country, all run by Birds Australia. Each is staffed by wardens who are well placed to welcome and assist visitors, provide valuable local knowledge about the area and its birds and other wildlife, and look after the needs of guests.
