3 Day Katherine River, Woodlands & Ecotones Tour
An opportunity to observe species from a different and rewarding platform. This 3 day program will include 1 day and night of canoeing/kayaking and walking along the Katherine River and its Ecotones and 2 days of walking and/or driving in the woodlands of the region. We access private land and large pastoral leases, not open to the general public, which ensures that travelling avoids overcrowded areas.
Travelling along the river presents many opportunistic sightings of a wide array of bird species. The diversity of species here is attributed to not only the water, but to the Ecotones or ‘transitional areas’, where species diversification occurs (Redreau). We see waders and waterbirds, raptors, grassland and woodland birds, all whilst spending time in the intimate surrounds of the river.
