Hi Ivan,

I was once in a similar situation to you i.e. I had to wait around Perth 
Airport for ~2 hours waiting for a friend to arrive.  So I wandered down the 
airports main entrance road and ended up at a small daggy area of heathland 
just outside the eastern border of the airport. It located on the east side of 
a small channel between Dunreath Dr and the Tonkin Hwy at the end of Boud Ave 
(see -31.940019, 115.950279). To get there, walk down Baker Rd, then turn south 
down Ross Dr, and then east down Boud Ave. All up, it's about a 15 minutes walk.

Aside from a nice selection of honeyeaters such Tawny-crowned, Singing, Brown, 
White-cheeked and New Holland (a chance of Western Wattlebird), as well as 
Australian Ringneck (Twenty-eight Parrot) and Laughing Dove, I flushed a 
Southern Brown Bandicoot, which ran across a walking track in the heath. 
Certainly an interesting native mammal to see in the centre of a major city. 
There were also some nice wildflowers about, including the spectacular Western 
Australian Fringe Lily (Thysanotus triandrus).

So, for a small daggy area of inner city heath, that’s birds, mammals and 
wildflowers all  a short walk from the airports front door.

Heading to Broome in a couple of weeks.  We have a 2 1/2 hour stopover at Perth 
airport early afternoon.  Just wondering about some quick birding opportunities 
in or around Perth airport.

Cheers Ivan Traverso
