About this guide

Birdwatching is a great way to get out into nature and observe some of Australia’s native wildlife. It requires little in the way of equipment – perhaps a pair of binoculars and weather-appropriate clothing and you’re set. Suitable for beginners and more advanced birdwatcher, young and old, anyone can join in.

This guide provides information on the best places to go, the best books, websites, and apps that are available about birdwatching. There are locations to visit and events you can join to find out more about the birds of Melbourne.
