Mallee and Outback Birds of Victoria and Mungo is eight-day birding journey to reveal the marvelous birdlife of arid central and north-western Victoria and Lake Mungo.

Crossing the Great Dividing Range and travel deeper into the Outback in search of the birds and other wildlife that thrive in diverse habitats in the arid zones. We explore ancient granite outcrops, vast open plains, Ramsar-listed ephemeral wetlands, outback rivers, salt lakes, Mallee woodlands, saltbush scrublands, undulating red dunes, ancient lakes of the Willandra World Heritage Area, the Lake Mungo Lunette (Walls of China). Taking our time we look for numerous desert parrots and cockatoos, waterbirds, a host of honeyeaters, more obvious inland birds as well as some of the more elusive and conservation-dependent Mallee birds, like Malleefowl and Mallee emu-wren. While we will be focussing on birds we also take time to observe mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, flora, landscapes and the rich heritage of the Willandra Lakes area.

Help to conserve the beautiful places and wildlife you see. Spend a little time on a glorious beach removing fishing nets that trap fish, birds and sea mammals. Along the coast and estuaries see Australian fur seals, white-bellied sea-eagles, pelicans, gannets, cormorants, oystercatchers and even a bottlenose dolphin.

Share this remote area with your experienced wildlife guide and each night return to the comforts of owner-operated lodge-style accommodation.

This special trip to Raymond Island allows you to become involved and provide assistance in a region that suffered horrendous wildlife losses as a result of the 2019–20 bushfires. These fires destroyed nearly two million hectares of forest in the far southeastern corner of Australia and killed untold millions of wild animals.

Raymond Island itself was not burnt and has now become a significant island ark for many species of plants and animals including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and many bird species. Echidna Walkabout and their not-for-profit Koala Clancy Foundation, have teamed up with the local Landcare group and concerned residents to set up a wild koala research project on the island. Data they collect will be collated by the new koala conservation group on the island – including tree species preference, behaviour, identification of individuals and evidence of koalas drinking stemflow (water moving down the stem). They take walks through the forest spotting koalas in the wild. They may also see echidnas, swamp wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos and many colourful parrots, honeyeaters and seabirds, which you can help record for conservation purposes.
