Hi Tony

A few suggestions.

Hattah-Kulkyne National Park (about 50kms South of Mildura).  Get a map from
the Mildura Information Centre (corner Deakin Ave and Twelfth St).  I
suggest a very slow drive and occasional get out for a wander along the
Nowingi Track and the Old Calder Highway to the walking track just near the
intersection with the Robinvale Rd.  We saw Malleefowl along the Nowingi
Track just last Saturday.  Mallee Emu-wren, Shy Heathwren, Crested Bellbird,
Chestnut Quail-thrush and Striated Grasswren also in this area.

Along the riverbank at Mildura from the Old Mildura Homestead to Apex Park.
This is in Mildura itself (Cureton Ave West) about 2 kms from the town
centre.  Bush and River birds along here and along River Road which heads
into the woodland halfway along this walk.  

For Redthroat and/or Crimson Chat (or Orange Chat) I suggest the track out
from Merbein towards Walpolla Island and Neds Corner (again ask at the
Information Centre). This has good environment for these and others such as
Mulga Parrot and Blue Bonnet.

Drive out to Mungo National Park. This is a fair way (over 100kms I think),
but is a great drive and many spots to stop along the way for casual birding
that can produce good mallee and dry country birds.

Kings Billabong.  Ask at Information Centre for map.  Generally very good
area, but perhaps fewer "uncommon" birds.

Hi AusBirders

I am going to Mildura over the holiday weekend, and will be with a couple of

newly interested birders.  Can anyone recommend some good birding spots.

We'll probably all be in a small 4WD, so nothing too extreme please!!

I'd like to see things like Redthroat, Crimson chat etc if possible, but 
we'll be happy with just being out in "birdifull" countryside

thanks and regards
