About this book

Despite being Australia's smallest mainland state, Victoria's varied landscapes provide habitat for more than 500 bird species. It is without question one of Australia's best-kept birding secrets.

This guide features over 40 destinations throughout Victoria, including such classic birding spots as Wyperfeld, Hattah, Kulkyne, Little Desert, Chiltern, Mount Pilot, Terrick Terrick, the Grampians, Croajingolong, Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula, the Otway Ranges, Wilsons Promontory and Mount Buffalo, as well as many places in and around Melbourne and along the coast. It provides information on how to get to each destination, what facilities and accommodation to expect and precisely where to look for those special or rare birds.

The book also provides a comprehensive and up-to-date list of birds, with the degree of rarity and where to see it noted for each species.
