After a wet winter and the best spring growth we have seen for many years, the birds are taking advantage of excellent conditions to breed in profusion.

An update on Orange-bellied Parrots

News on the OBP front is not so rosy as things seem to be for birds here at Inala, but we're not giving up the fight yet. Confronted with the cold hard facts that only four wild females and eleven wild males returned this year to their breeding ground at Bathurst Harbour, and recognition that the captive-breeding program has failed to...Read more

A time for raptors

Tuesday, 12 July 2016

Winter is a time for raptors here at Inala. With all species more likely to feed on carrion during the colder months, our raptor photography hide is the place to be!

More goings-on at Inala

Sunday, 18 December 2016

Property works Our Property Manager Bori has been busy fencing and planting an area in front of the Inala office with native species to screen the raptor hide from the driveway (access to the cottages). This will reduce the risk of vehicles and people walking along the driveway inadvertently disturbing birds near the hide. Also, with the...Read more

Sunday, 18 December 2016

Group tours Our group tours are selling well, with limited places left on our Cape York and Queensland Wet Tropics tours (next June-July 2017).

A time for all birds

Tuesday, 12 July 2016

We have enjoyed a few odd bird sightings on the island of late. Strong-billed Honeyeaters, one of our favourite endemics, as well as several other species, have been exhibiting winter nesting behaviour.

New faces, and familiar ones

Sunday, 18 December 2016

We would like to welcome Dan Davies. Dan is helping us with our IT, website and business development, and is a great addition to the Inala team.

Wildlife care (the 'babies report')

Sunday, 18 December 2016

We’ve said goodbye to last year’s ‘crop’ of babies: Monday, Morinna and Mangana, the Tasmanian Pademelons, and Mac and Monique, the Bennett’s wallabies. They've now made their home in the greater Inala landscape. Monique was the most reluctant to go and spent the first few weeks of her release either in the office, in the shed (creating...Read more
