Inala is a reserve for birders run by birders. Our thoughtfully crafted bird hides and viewing platforms offer our visitors superb opportunities to view and photograph our birds. We have a purpose-built platform for viewing the rare endemic Forty-spotted Pardalote in close proximity to nesting sites, this allows for excellent up-close encounters with this sought after species without any disturbance to their natural behaviour.

We also have a hide and secluded viewing platform located near water in woodland close to the accommodations. Endemics like Strong-billed and Yellow-throated Honeyeater may be seen bathing, as may the stunning Pink Robin and the shy Olive Whistler. Some of our guests have their most memorable birding moments in these hides just a few minutes walk from their accommodations!  

Keen photographers may also be interested in our raptor viewing hide and our brand new raptor photgraphy hide during the Bruny Island Bird Festival. (Opening on October 22nd 2018)

This is especially productive in the winter months when birds are more prone to attend the feeding station, and an array of raptors may be seen. Grey Goshawk (white morph), Wedge-tailed Eagle, Brown Falcon, White-bellied Sea Eagle and Swamp Harrier may all be photographed.
