We are gradually developing more of these self-guided birding route brochures, so it is worth checking this section of the website from time to time to see if there are any additions. We also intend eventually to update the brochures for the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie areas as these were prepared many years ago (hence, some of the site descriptions no longer apply, and in some cases the birds to be found there have changed as well).

Caution: The birding routes that have no image above their link were created about 15 years ago. Most of the information in them still is correct but we do know that some things may have changed.
