Bird watching

Kakadu, Northern Territory, Australia

The Northern Territory is home to expansive and varying eco-systems from desert, savannah woodlands, and sandstone plateau to wetlands, mangrove and monsoon forests. It also welcomes unique weather patterns – a perfect combination that brings in over 400 bird species.

As part of our marketing efforts to promote bird watching in the Northern Territory, Tourism NT has teamed up with the Red Centre Bird Fair, Arnhem Land Bird Week and Kakadu Bird Week, to develop a new NT Bird Watching Calendar.

If you are a local operator, accommodation provider, artist, photographer, bird specialist or have a ‘bird oriented’ product, you can now register relevant activities and events for inclusion in the NT Bird Watching Calendar.

Events can run between August and October in the lead up to bird weeks and will help enhance a visitor’s overall experience of the NT.

If you would like to register your event, bird count, activity or special deal you can download the registration form and return it to Tourism NT.

Your event will be listed online, and promoted via publications nationally along with various bird watching associations throughout Australia.
