Birdwatching in the South Burnett

Kingaroy, South Burnett Area

With more than 350 recorded species, the South Burnett is a bird watchers dream. The region is known for the Black-breasted Button-quail and Glossy Black-Cockatoo, but expect to see the likes of the Red-rumped Parrot, Regent Bowerbird, Rainbow Bee-eater, Dollarbird and Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater too.

A diverse array of habitats from dry rainforest and hoop pine forests, to expansive water masses, open woodlands and soft vine scrub, ensures prolific bird life year round.

Try these local hot spots: Lake Barambah, Nanango Fauna Sanctuary, Mudlo Conservation Park Kilkivan, Wooroolin Wetlands; Gordonbrook Dam; Boat Mountain Regional Park, Bunya Mountains National Park. Viewing platforms, lookouts and walking tracks are great vantage points, but keep your eyes peeled wherever you are, as you can spot birds along quiet country roads, in parks and urban areas.

The South Burnett is ideally situated two and a half hours from Brisbane, the Sunshine and Fraser Coasts. It is fringed by the pine-clad Bunya Mountains to the south-west, the hoop-pine covered Blackbutt Range to the east and the historic Burnett Range to the north.

Pack your walking shoes, picnic, hat, bird book and binoculars and record your own list of sightings in the South Burnett.
