2020 Katherine Bird Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

10 Sep 2020 to 13 Sep 2020

Katherine hosted its inaugural Bird Festival in 2018 and has fast become an annual event with participants doubling in the 2019 event.

Many events centered around the vulnerable Gouldian Finch. Bird counts were conducted to aid research, bird boxes were built and painted by community groups, and expert-guided walks led many guests to proclaim ‘Wow! That’s my first Gouldian I’ve seen in the wild!’.

Other events to be held in 2020 include bird-watching cruises, expert led morning, afternoon and nocturnal bird watching activities, information sessions and family activities.

This Bird Festival is not to be missed – it will undoubtedly become one of Australia’s premier birding events. This bird watchers haven won’t remain a secret for very long! Save the date today, and check the Facebook site for event/program updates.
