Chatline members might be interested in attending the event below.


Bird Haven Festival is a new celebration to promote an appreciation and understanding of birds and their habitat. It will become an annual event held in Shoalhaven Heads and will be based around the themes of Science, Conservation, Education, Community and Creativity. BirdLife Shoalhaven are delighted to be a supporter of this exciting initiative.

This first "fledgling" Bird Haven Festival will be on Sunday 21 October 2018 to coincide with the beginning of National Bird Week starting at 9am, so please put it in your diary now.

The organizers are bringing together a program of talks, focusing on the special importance of Shoalhaven Heads for bird lovers of all levels of experience, as well as promoting the Aussie Backyard Bird Count. Harry Saddler, author of the new book The Eastern Curlew, will talk about the miraculous 10,000 kilometre journey these birds make each year from their breeding grounds in Siberia to Shoalhaven Heads. A diverse range of activities are being organised, including a Saturday night showing of the wonderful film about the Twitchathon, Chasing Birds, and walks at various locations around the Heads. Children will be well catered for to encourage the next generation of birders.

The Festival's underlying aim is to support the conservation of birds and their habitats by making festival goers bird advocates.

Tickets to this year's event will be available online shortly for $10, including morning tea. Numbers are limited due to the size of the venue, so register your interest now at
