We would like to say a BIG thanks to the many kind people that have
provided us with so much really useful information for our travels
around Australia later in the year, and particularly those that have
offered their time as well as their knowledge and are willing to show us their special birds and favourite birding haunts; we'll be seeing
you later! Once again we are reminded that we are part of a very
special sharing network of good people. Thank you.

John & Georgina

Hi everybody - we're hoping you can help with our Aus planning; it's our first trip for birding purposes so entirely green!

In November we are leaving New Zealand for an extended birding
holiday in Australia; we plan to be there for approximately 4
months, maybe a little longer. We fly initially to Cairns in early
November and will spend our first week at Cassowary House which
includes 2 days guided birding. Beyond this our plan is pretty
fluid. From Cairns we plan to hire a vehicle and drive south around the coast down as far as Melbourn where we will then take a flight to either Darwin or Perth; depending on the time of the year at this point i.e. Darwin only if the timing is post-wet season.

Any snippets of information on 'must visit' sites, local guides,
general info etc will be gratefully received.

Many thanks, John & Georgina
