Fantastic web site, great resource. Helped me identify what bird I just spotted in my own backyard! The birdlife in Central Australia is interesting and very engaging.

I have used Laurie's directions for birdwatching walks on a couple of business visits to Darwin when I don't have enough time to go out of town but still want to see some wildlife. The directions are clear and the birdlife sightings have been terrific. My favourite so far is Channel Island where I misunderstood Laurie's directions and walked through some spooky history as well as catching some incredible birds. Nightcliff foreshore was another that really delivered. I am often here in the wet season, don't be put off, you can still see lots of birds and wildlife.…

My wife and I had a private 7 day tour with Laurie. It was a fabulous experience. Laurie is remarkable in his ability to locate the target birds. This was a photography tour and Laurie was very generous in passing on tips to help improve our photography. We are looking forward to another trip with Laurie in the future. Laurie’s ability to hear bird calls and find the birds is remarkable. Couple that with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the birds and the result is an amazing bird guide. Laurie’s understanding of photography means that he gets you into the best positions to get that amazing photo. Time spent in the portable birdhide resulted in excellent images of Papuan Pitta and Palm cockatoos feeding on beach almonds. The accommodation and meals were excellent and we handled the wet season weather without any difficulty. Wet season is a great time to visit Iron Range.…
