The Chiltern Box Ironbark National Park surrounds the picturesque historic town of Chiltern, so birdwatchers can easily access the many excellent bird locations by foot from town, or reach any location in the district by a short bicycle or car ride.

Chiltern is one of the Premiere Bird Watching areas in Southern Australia.

The district has exceptional bird diversity, due to the high quality of habitat protected in the Chiltern National Park and surrounds, and because the location of the district is on the boundary of two distinct bioregions, the drier woodlands of the inland, and the wetter mountain forests. More than 220 species have been recorded at Chiltern, 180 of them residents or regular visitors.

This web site details the best sites for birdwatching in Chiltern.

Included are details on

                                Four Half Day Bird Tours

However, all can be done at greater or less speed, depending on your time availability and what the birds are doing on the day. Most of the locations given are in the Chiltern National Park or the Mt Pilot Park.

Please observe the Parks regulations.
