Australian National Botanic Gardens

Sat 7 & Sun 8 October, 7.45am – 9.30am — Meet at the Visitor Centre

Join us for an early morning bird watching walk in the Australian National Botanic Gardens during Floriade with one of our experienced guides. 

The Gardens provides a fantastic habitat for many of Canberra’s birds, with water and nectar in abundance. Spring is a great time to observe the feeding and nesting behaviour of our birds and their young.

Join us for a 90-minute guided walk. 

  • Find out how to identify our most common black birds, such as magpies, currawongs, ravens, choughs, and magpie larks.  
  • Be introduced to cockatoos, parrots and honeyeaters; learn some tips on distinguishing between all those small brown birds.  
  • Discover the habitats where birds are most commonly encountered in the Gardens.  

Meet at the Visitor Centre at 7.45 am. Please wear comfortable footwear and warm clothes and bring your own binoculars if you have them. Not suitable for children under 8.
