Dysart, Isaac Area
Mining towns are sometimes overlooked when planning an itinerary, yet if you happen to enjoy a spot of birdwatching, then Dysart is one mining town worth visiting! Enjoying a diverse array of habitats, Dysart is home to a variety of bird species that even the most passionate birdwatcher hopes to see! Pack your walking shoes, don a hat and some sunscreen (30 plus) and prepare to listen out for bird calls and study the wildlife with your naked eye through some binoculars. Learn from these animals and the values they transmit on respect to nature and the fragility of ecosystems.
Emu's can often be seen from the rural roadsides surrounding Dysart, including the 'Golden Mile'. Cockatoo's, Galah's and other colourful parrots can be found in abundance in the township, as well as blue-faced honeyeaters.
Dysart is part of the Mining Trail drive and brochures can be picked up from Visitor Information Centres in the region.
