Walks: Lots of short nature walks and bush explorations in a variety of terrain

3 nights accommodation

Focus: Learning about nature sounds and birdsong

Destinations: Mitchell River National Park

Educational discovery level: High

When we think about spending time out in nature most of us think first about what we will be seeing.  Will I see nice views, pretty flowers or wildlife perhaps? We would like to introduce you to the aft of listening to the sounds of nature and help you both sharpen your listening skills and learn more about what nature sounds tell us about various landscapes and what lives in them.

Andrew Skeoch from Listening Earth will be bringing his enthusiasm for sound to join forces with Jenny on this very special tour.  Discover the richness of the bird’s dawn chorus and sounds of the bush during the day in a variety of habitats.

Then as night falls is seems so quiet, but is it?  Hopefully we will hear nocturnal wildlife and owls as well as tiny sounds that many people rarely notice.

Along the way Jenny will lead you to explore bushland around our cottage accommodation, plus parts of the Mitchell River National Park.  From dry rain-shadow woodland, to pockets of warm temperate rainforest, this park protects Victoria’s largest un-dammed river catchment.

Andrew will have some formal presentations and you will be introduced to the equipment used for nature sound recordings and maybe try your hand at recording yourself. This promises to be a wonderful journey of discovery and places are very limited on each departure.

Fully accommodated every night in a delightful cottage set in gardens and bushland. Shady verandahs outside and a cosy wood fire inside provide plenty of choices to relax for quiet times. Walks are mostly short and easy but will include a variety of terrain, check with us if you have concerns.
