Birdwatching in the Margaret River Baudins Black Cocktaoos

Bring your binos, it’s birdwatching heaven here

The Margaret River region offers some of the best birdwatching in Australia, with a wealth of feathered friends to admire and tick off your twitcher’s list.

Cruise the Blackwood with Augusta River Tours to see red necked stints, a tiny bird that migrates from Siberia each year. See endangered red and white tail cockatoos in the forest or munching marri gumnuts. Spot the elusive purple crowned lorikeet near Mammoth Cave or painted in a mural in Cowaramup. Dine at The Berry Farm and you’ll likely have splendid fairy wrens and New Holland honeyeaters vying for crumbs.

These are just a few examples; grab your binoculars and head to some of these birdwatching spots mentioned below. Better still, engage the help of a bird-loving tour guide to find tried and tested birding sites.
