Melbourne Birding Tours

Melbourne Birding Tours will take you deep into the wonderful Dandenong Ranges National Park. You will gaze up in awe at the height of the tallest flowering plants in the world, the incredible Mountain Ash.

The Dandenong Ranges National Park is the place to go if you want to see parrots, robins, cockatoos and the chance of the amazing Superb Lyrebird. Melbourne Birding Tours will do several nature walks searching the whole day for the birds of the temperate rainforest, also taking in Bunyip State Park.

The tour begins at 7:00am when you are collected from your hotel for a day of exciting birdwatching. Melbourne Birding Tours then drive east of Melbourne for 40 minutes before emerging you into the Dandenong Ranges National Park. Once there the search begins with a series of nature walks listening out for the many birds that inhabit the majestic forest. We will stop for lunch at one of the local cafes before continuing their bird walks and drives throughout the park. Finishing the birding tour around 3:00pm and head back to Melbourne for a 4:00pm drop off.

Tour routes may be altered on days of high bushfire risk.
