The aim of the Bayside branch of Birdlife Australia is to promote responsible birdwatching as an enjoyable recreation, leading to increased knowledge about Australian birds and a better understanding of their habitat requirements in the Bayside area of Melbourne.
We hold monthly meetings from February to November, featuring a guest speaker, as well as supper and a door prize.
We also conduct outings, where we go and see the varied wildlife and bird habitats of the area. These outings are led by an experienced bird observer who will be happy to share their knowledge of local birds with you.
On some outings, with experts in subjects like native plants and mammals, there is also the chance to find out more about the flora and fauna in the area.
Most of our outings are free for visitors and members alike. When there is an outing that has a cost — for example, one of our regular trips to Mud Islands — the cost will be stated clearly.
