Perth Birds and Bush are developing a range of guided walks to meet demand from those with less time , who are on a budget or are concerned about travelling in a tour vehicle during the Covid-19 pandemic. This page will be updated regularly during September 2020 as these tours are developed and arranged. Please enquire by email if you like the sound of a tour but the advertised date does not suit your group.
The maximum group size for these walks is 6 to ensure everyone receives a quality and relaxed experience. Bookings are essential and close two days prior to the walk.
Birding for beginners

Use iNaturalist and Questagame apps to record nature
Do you want to learn about wildflowers? Want to help save your local bush? Become a citizen scientist by making flower and animal records.
On this walk you will learn how to use two apps that document nature for the Atlas of Living Australia. After introductions and some basics, we go for a walk in Korung National Park in Lesmurdie and you will be guided to submit records on your phone using the apps. We finish with a cuppa, a chat and you will receive a summary sheet of tips for using the apps. Cost is $30 each.
We will be walking on gravel paths on sloping surfaces, so you will need to have average to good mobility.
