Bird lovers should pack their binoculars and head to the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory.
While the sheer number and variety of birds that inhabit the Northern Territory make it a unique birdwatching destination, it is its rare species that make it truly special. The NT currently boasts four endemic species of birds including the White-Lined Honeyeater, the White-throated Grass Wren, and the Chestnut-quilled Rock Pigeon
Comprising such diverse environments as woodlands, monsoon forests; sandstone country and floodplains, wetlands and billabongs, it’s hardly surprising that the region is home to over four hundred bird species - many in plentiful numbers.
Top recommended locations include Kakadu’s Mamukala Wetlands, which features in this video.
