This is a true outback experience travelling off-road in a four-wheel drive vehicle with a small group of fellow bird watchers, and camping in the great outdoors of Central Australia. As well as enjoying some spectacularly scenic regions including red rock escarpments, red sand spinifex country and salt lakes, you'll visit two areas that are a beacon for birds that inhabit the region.
Newhaven Bird Sanctuary covers 647,000 acres and contains 10 differing vegetation systems and landforms unique to any other reserve in northern Australia. It supports over 160 species of birds, including the last reported sighting of the endangered Night Parrot. After generous summer rains, Newhaven will flourish with species usually only seen on the coastal wetlands.
Boggy Hole on the Finke River system is the largest and most spectacular of only eight permanent water hole systems in Central Australia. It is a veritable ornithologist's haven.
