Currently due to Covid-19 the Australian borders are closed to foreign nationals and, as of 24 March 2020, any Australians crossing into the Western Australian borders are required to quarantine for 14 days. However, the current restriction levels in Western Australia allows tours to operate for people that are in Western Australia or have completed their 14 day quarantine.

Availability: Perth Birds and Bush is fully booked for the following periods:

2020:  31 October to 5 November, 10 November, 5 to 6 December  and 23 to 28 December 2020.

In 2020 guided walks have been introduced to our range of tours to meet demand for people who have less time or are on a budget. These tours are paid up front through Eventbrite but have a 1 day refund policy where only the Eventbrite booking fee will be lost if restrictions change and the walk has to be cancelled. The total cost per person is $50 or less (including the booking fee). At this stage the walks are restricted to a maximum of 6 people and will go ahead even if only 1 person books on the tour.

The walks require you to provide your own transport and meet the guide at the location. The walk will be followed by a light morning tea.

Information on the walks, locations and dates can be found here.
