Birdwatching in Griffith

Apostle birds are close and friendly at Lake Wyangan

Griffith is at the confluence of the hills and the plains in NSW. It is within 35 kms of the Murrumbidgee River, it is 20 Kms from Cocoparra National Park (the last range of hills going west until you get to the Flinders Ranges). The dry plains of the west meet the rolling hills of the tablelands and so do the habitats of the birds.

Several rare and endangered species can be found in the area, including Painted Honeyeaters, Black Honeyeaters, Turquoise Parrots and Grey Crowned Babblers.
Recommended birding sites include:

The Murrumbidgee Field Naturalists keep records of sightings and details of club excursions on their site and you will also find reference to good sites on the walking, cycling and driving maps that you will find elsewhere at GriffithGateway.com.
