A Birding Icon Hits The Ton!



From 12 April 2005 life for an Australian bird‑watching icon will be one big party.


The Bird Observers Club of Australia (BOCA), based in Nunawading, will celebrate its 100th birthday with a Melbourne based art exhibition, a tree planting, a people‑driven history, a Centenary Dinner and a Medallion Presentation Dinner, as well as a series of Australia‑wide outings, tours and camps.


From Gippsland and SW Victoria, Ballarat, Echuca, the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas, the Yarra Valley, and the Ovens/Murray river areas to Cairns in Queensland, BOCA will mark the Centenary with events including barbecues, walkabouts, tagalong tours and ocean bird‑watching trips.


From humble beginnings ‑ a 1905 all‑male meeting of 25 'field ornithologists' in a quiet Brighton house ‑ BOCA has ballooned to include over 3500 men, women and children together with 37 Branches and Affiliate Groups throughout Australia. Its policy of conservation, education, and appreciation is aimed at helping today's birds survive tomorrow. BOCA is dedicated to teaching everyone more about Australia's hundreds of unique birds. The organisation actively promotes bird‑watching as an enjoyable and healthy interest for all, regardless of age or fitness.


Happy 100th BOCA!
