FULL DAY 7am - 4:30pm

Expert Photography tuition by award winning photographers David Stowe & Henry Cook.

Self Drive

Fully Catered (morning & afternoon tea, lunch included)

Starting at Brunkerville and finishing at Matcham.



Our meeting place is The Old Brush - a private property with a couple of cute little cabins and lots of great birds; many of whom are used to coming to feeders. There our focus will be on some cool forest birds, like Wonga and White-headed Pigeons, Bar-shouldered and Brown Cuckoo Doves as well as Satin Bowerbirds, and Eastern Yellow Robins. If we're lucky we might add Rose Robin and Bassian Thrush.



We’ll then drive to our second location, which is another private property at Matcham on the Central Coast. Our main targets there will be Green Catbird and hopefully Regent Bowerbird. A couple of species that are typically pretty tough to see and photograph close to Sydney.
