Some of the most unique and interesting birds can be found in the land down under. Australia houses around 10 percent of all known bird species, making it a dream holiday for birding enthusiasts. Australia birding tours are tailor made travel packages that allow birders to travel this country and get in the most amount of birding during the limited time of a holiday. Most international flights to Australia are done to Sydney Airport. Getting into and out of the country is not covered as part of the package cost. This is standard across all travel companies as guests come from all over the world and it is not possible to quote a standard price. Travel between the cities is also done by plane as it would simply take too long for Australia birding tours to be done by road.
Most Australia birding tours start off outside the city of Melbourne and then heads to the more inland region to reach the outback where majority of birding species lie in wait. Birds to be seen on Australia birding tours that cannot be seen elsewhere include the Australian Logrunner and the Regent Bowerbird. Groups have to travel to very specific areas to target these bird species. This is where the tour guide comes along and leads the group directly to the spots preferred of these birds. Attempting Australia birding tours alone as a foreigner is not wise. If you only have a limited amount of time in the country then you would not want to waste even a second of it searching.
Sure the search and the thrill of finding new species is an exciting aspect of bird watching, but in a foreign land where time is of the essence you would want to ensure that you rack up your list as fast as you can. Australia is a very forward country and as such, guests on Australia birding tours do not have to slum it. Australia birding tours are done by going out into the remote wild and into a wide variety of habitats, though there is always a comfortable lodge in these parts to ensure that guests receive many modern facilities. Travel to the bird watching areas are done in jeep vehicles which is best able to handle off road terrain.
The jeeps cannot get too close to the birds, for fear of them flying away. A little bit of walking and rock climbing is therefore necessary on Australia birding tours. Guests would not have to be in peak physical condition to consider going on the trip but in general good health. People with serious ailments should always consult their doctor before attempting overseas trips. Other than booking the Australia birding tours to correspond with your free time and packing along personal belongings, there is not much else for guests to prepare for. All scheduling and confirmation of all of the logistics of the trip will be handled by the travel agency. With this major headache taken out of the equation, birders can simply arrive stress free and have a wonderful trip.
