The Great Southern Tour concentrates on the many specialties of the southern coastal region of South Australia and the South Australian outback.

Departing in Adelaide, we explore the outback deserts with birds such as Cinnamon Quail-thrush, Thick-billed Grasswren and Chestnut-breasted Whiteface. The Flinders Ranges, with its rugged escarpments and deep gorges provide rich birdlife including the elusive Short-tailed Grasswren.

You’ll visit Birdlife Australia’s splendid Gluepot reserve, home to Malleefowl, Striated Grasswren, the endangered Black-eared Miner, Chestnut Quail-thrush, Southern Scrub-robin and the very rare Red-lored Whistler. The Murray River will provide plenty of excitement with Freckled Duck, Yellow Rosella, Regent and Superb Parrot. Heading east we search for Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo and the tiny Mallee Emu-wren while on the grassy plains we spotlight the endemic and very rare Plains-wanderer. Along the scenic southern coast, you’ll pick up Rufous Bristlebird and Gang-gang Cockatoo; marvel at the masses of waterbirds and visit the tall, wet forests home to Superb Lyrebird, Powerful Owl and many other forest birds.

This itinerary provides a perfect balance between maximising the species count – expect around 250 species – and the number of days on the road.

Just off the Adelaide coast, Kangaroo Island harbours a unique, diverse wildlife, specialised birds, striking scenery (including remarkable granite formations) and vast wilderness, protected in many reserves. Kangaroo Island Kangaroos, tammar wallabies, echidnas, brush-tailed possums, bottle-nosed dolphins, Australian sea-lions, Australian and New-Zealand Fur Seals and many of the 260 birds listed for the island can be seen year round in their natural habitats during our 4-day guided tour. Key birds include the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo, colonies of Short-tailed Shearwaters, Hooded Plover, Cape Barren Goose, Rock Parrot, the elusive Western Whipbird and the cute Fairy Penguin as well as many sea and land birds.

During this all-inclusive tour you’ll stay at some of the island’s exclusive accommodation located within its natural wonders. Fully guided, departing from and returning to Adelaide, SA, the itinerary is flexible to allow for extensions or modifications as required. This tour links seamlessly with their Great Southern tour in November each year.
