The Shoalhaven on the NSW south coast is home to an amazing variety of birds and is a mecca for birdwatchers.
BirdLife Shoalhaven promotes a better understanding of our birds and works tirelessly to ensure their survival.





Self-guided Walks

You can find birds anywhere in the Shoalhaven, but if you do the walks shown below you should be able to pick up all the different species of birds that live here, as well as all of our regular migrants who live here for part of the year but travel elsewhere at other times - depending of course on the time of the year that you are here.

A printable checklist for common Shoalhaven birds can be found at Checklist of common Shoalhaven Birds.

A printable checklist for all 400 Shoalhaven birds can be found at Checklist of 400 Shoalhaven Birds. This list includes vagrants and rarities that you are unlikely to see.

There are 18 walks listed below. Follow the links to view those walks on this website. Walks 1 - 12 (in the left column) are included in a brochure called "Shoalhaven Bird Walks" that can be picked up at the Nowra and Ulladulla Visitor Centres - or downloaded for viewing and/or printing by clicking on the following link - Shoalhaven Bird Walks.
