Bird Watching

The Brewarrina Shire is a wonderful place to go birdwatching because seeing birds is easy, they are everywhere you look.

Wherever you go, there are birds. Not just along the river banks, but on farmlands, parks, on the tallest of trees and even in the driest areas of the shire.

Birdwatchers in Brewarrina are lucky because there are so many different birds to see, and many of them are charismatic and colourful, have beautiful songs, and many of them are easy to see.

The beauty of birdwatching is its free to be done anywhere and anytime you feel like it.

Watching birds can take on many different forms. For most people it is a relaxing pastime which allows them to head out into the fresh air and visit places they may not usually go. Some enjoy the freedom of solitude it can provide while others see it as a social experience, meeting with people who share a common interest. For others it is the lure of the chase which ignites their passion. Still others look upon birds as environmental indicators and use them to understand how the natural world is faring.

Whatever drives birdwatchers, almost all agree — they like watching birds to appreciate their beauty and freedom, and because it’s enjoyable.
