BirdLife Yarra Valley provides local birdwatching activities in the Yarra Valley and surrounding areas, such as Lilydale, Healesville, Yarra Glen and Warburton.
The Yarra Valley is a diverse area full of wonderful places to go birdwatching, as the diverse habitats that are found in our region support an astounding array of native birds.
Many of our activities and outings take place among the magnificent tall forests of Yarra Ranges National Park. We are also fortunate to include Coranderrk Bushland, the Yarra River and many wonderful walking trails in our patch.
Special birds that share our environment include the Superb Lyrebird and its ‘companion’ Pilotbird, Large-billed Scrubwren, Grey Currawong, Pink Robin and Yellow-tufted Honeyeater.
BirdLife Yarra Valley holds bimonthly meetings on the second Tuesday of February, April, August and October in the Badger Creek Hall meeting room (at the rear of the hall), on Badger Creek Road, Badger Creek, look for the CFA shed – the hall is next door), starting at 7:30 pm. Meetings are cancelled if it is a day of Total Fire Ban.
We also regularly hold outings on the second Saturday and fourth Wednesday of the month, though occasionally the date is changed, and outings are cancelled on days of Total Fire Ban. Our outings are generally within the Yarra Valley, though we occasionally venture further afield, including to north of the Great Divide, and the odd organised bus trip.
Use our online form to get in touch and we will respond as soon as possible.
