Birdwatching on Keswick Island

Keswick Island, Mackay Area

Keswick Island is a bird watcher's paradise.

The island is home to many different bird species, with sightings of at least 33 different birds documented to date - an impressive variety for an island of Keswick's size.

The ground dwellers are easy to spot, often crossing the road up ahead or making their way along the grassy verges as you drive along in your buggy. Curlews and Lapwings will lay eggs just about anywhere, not even bothering to build the most rudimentary nest.

Spectacular Sea Eagles and Kites can be regularly seen on Keswick. They build large nests, usually on cliff tops, and are known to re-use the same nest year after year. Notable nests on Keswick have been seen at Langton Point and near Singapore Bay. Eagles' nests are best viewed from a boat.
