Is anyone interested in sharing costs for a trip to Broome for 4 to 7 days in January or February? There are cheap airfare packages going from Perth for $500 to $700 including accommodation. I assume that there would be similar packages from elsewhere in Australia?

This trip would be a bit of a twitch, although the main species that I would be looking for would be Grass Owl, plus Tawny Grassbird for my Broome list.

I might get lucky if there is a cyclone or storm which could produce a swift, wagtail, or something different. I know where to find most of the Broome specialties.

I would be going to Derby for one day. I was thinking of organising one, two or three days with one of the local tour operators to get access to some of the better sites on Roebuck Plains station (if the tracks are open).

We would need to hire a small 4WD (RAV4) for about $80 to $100 per day, or if there were 3 or 4 people then a Landcruiser for $100 to $120 a day.

I am not sure of the dates yet. I have a few commitments. Possible periods could be during :

Friday 11th to Sunday 20th January
Friday 8th February to Sunday 24th February
