What Bird is That?

In the flowering heathlands, Mark will identify several types of honeyeaters. On the seashore expect to see White Bellied Sea Egles, Gannets, and Whitsling Kites. In the rainforest you will hear Whipbirds, Pardalotes and Thornbills and may even catch sight of the magnificent Gold and Black Regent Bowerbird.

Parrots, Lorikeets, Fairy Wrens and Firetail Finches will light the forest and as you are never far from wetlands, lake and sea you'll see a magnificent vairety of waterbirds. On the sandy bay you may be lucky enough to spot the Gold And Purple Azure Kingfisher while Mark serves a delicious homemade breakfast.
