Geelong And Surrounds
Focusing on eastern beach, eastern park and the Geelong Botanical Gardens. A lot of gannets.
Trips to the north of Geelong: Limeburners Bay, the You Yangs and Serendip Sanctuary.
I used to live near Balyang Sanctuary and spent a lot of time looking for birds along the river. Heavy emphasis on Buckley Falls and Jerringot.
Focusing on Lake Lorne, Lake Victoria and Ocean Grove Nature Reserve.
An area I’m hoping to visit more.
The Great Ocean Road
Birdwatching trips between Torquay and Lorne.
A favourite for rockpooling
I’ve spent a lot of time visiting Apollo Bay with my family. I’ve explored areas close to the township quite thoroughly.
I spent a weekend in Portland to the view the gannet colony. This reports mostly focus on that, but I checked out a couple of other haunts while in the area
My parents have a bushblock about 30 minutes out of Ballarat. In 2015, it was hit by bushfire.
Primarily focusing on birding locations west of Melbourne such as the WTP, Truganina Swamp and Jawbone Reserve. Also reports from a couple of trips to Toolangi.
I spent 3 days in Chiltern and surrounds on a weekend when captive regent honeyeaters were released. There are only a couple of reports, but am planning to return.
Quick reports from 2 Tasmanian trips. Both times were close to Hobart.
I spent a week holidaying with my partner at Surfers Paradise. These reports mostly focus on day tours we did, but there are a few small adventures I did while at conferences.
