Welcome to the BirdLife Townsville.
Townsville is situated on the coast in tropical north Queensland, Australia roughly 400 kilometres south of Cairns and 1350 kilometres north of Brisbane.
The region is home to about 400 of Australia’s 800+ species of birds. With that many species to be found, the region is a bird watchers’ mecca. Some of the birds are quite rare and while some are endangered, many are quite easily found providing you know where to look.
Hopefully this site will assist you in your bird watching activities in the Townsville Region.
