Mt Banks Wilson and Tomah

Saturday 17 November 2018
Guide: Carol Probets

Leave suburbia behind. Ascend the eastern escarpment up Bell Bird Hill with Bell's Miners tinkling to Kurrajong Heights and spectacular views over Sydney. Flanked by grassy rolling hills dotted with small rural properties you enter the fruit orchards of Bilpin and then the pristine wilderness along Bell's Line of Road to Mt Tomah rising abruptly and capped with ancient basalt, rainforest and NSW's cool climate Botanic Gardens.

We will be looking for Gang-gang Cockatoo, Eastern Whipbird, lots of forest birds generally and magnificent plants of course. Later at Mt Banks - Tawny-crowned Honeyeater, White-eared Honeyeater and Grey Currawong among the heathland wildflowers and sweeping views towards the Grose Valley.

Killara - 8.00am, return 5.30pm approx
Bathurst Street - 7.30am, return 6.00pm approx

Holiday Hot Spot

Saturday 15 December 2018
Guide: Edwin Vella

When the friends and "rellies" arrive and you'd like a day out enjoying their company without having to drive and organise at this frantic time of year. Take advantage of a birdwatching day with the latest sightings, the best weather location and perhaps a rare bird record(from the NSW Record Keeper himself ! ) to extend your welcome to visiting companions. Overseas visitors will jump at the chance of a day watching exciting Australian birds. Their refreshing joy at things we take for granted gives us a new take on Galahs, Superb Fairy Wrens and all our splendidly coloured parrots. It is still a mystery destination, only revealed on that Saturday morning but as always we do guarantee a fabulous day out for all.

Killara - 8.30am, return 5.30pm approx
Macquarie Street - 8.00am, return 6.00pm approx
