We spend 2,5 month driving around 2/3ths of Australia to see as many new species as possible. Since we had been in Papua just before this trip we didn’t try for the longest list possible, but we did all right seeing 559 species in total. Because this was quite a long trip and the covered area is huge we tried to give some overview in our report. We visited 11 birding areas, skipping the Iron Ranges and Western Australia. We decided to drive the entire trip which meant we could only see some additional species along the way that are otherwise hard to reach.
Since we are still traveling this is a preliminary trip report with our main findings and a rough annotated species list (counts are incomplete and subspecies indication is missing). Please send us an email if you are looking for specific information and can’t find it in the report.
