2024 Pricing for Australia: We recommend all tour participants enjoy 17 days and 16 nights in Southeast Queensland and North Queensland11,800 AUD (estimate $7,890 USD or 6,200 GBP) for 17 Days and 16 Nights.

Inclusions: 

  • The tour package includes (as priced) all lodging, meals*, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites.

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of excellent local bird guides, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. 

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into Australia and information on travel health issues, packing information, and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen. These custom birding tour modules for Australia require additional support for scheduling and planning and building group consensus, and these services are built into the tour price.

  • Transport and Airport Transfers

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van for most of the trip and jeeps in some locations.

    • We support airport transfers (whether from an international flight or a domestic flight). No matter your transfer plans, we arrange the best way to get you to and from the airport to your first hotel.

    • Flight costs for international and internal (to Australia) flights are not included. We book internal flights at cost and charge you the true cost of the flight.

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation.

  • Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven or eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for groups with fewer than seven participants, and these small-group supplements are very reasonable for groups of five or six. We do find the best value tours are for five to eight participants, with most tours running as groups of six to eight.

 

Additions to Basic Trip Pricing:

  • Most of our Australian groups start their tour in Brisbane; and, most tour participants fly from their home country to Brisbane to start the tour.

  • Most clients continue from Brisbane to Cairns, Darwin, and/or Hobart for additional Australian birding. Most internal flights cost about 170 to 250 AUD, with most tour participants averaging about 200 AUD for each leg of their internal (to Australia) flights. We prefer to book these flights (so the group is on the same flight), and we book these flights at cost for you.
