This is a 3 hour walking tour of the Inala Reserve. We tailor the time and the experience to suit your needs. We are able to run these tours in the morning or the afternoon although the mornings are best for birds.
Walk with one of our expert guides around the Inala Private Reserve, a 1,500 acre (205 ha) Land for Wildlife property which is home to a variety of threatened species and all 12 Tasmanian endemic birds. Observe at close range the Endangered Tasmanian endemic Forty-spotted Pardalote from the purpose-built canopy platform within one of its largest known colonies. View raptors such as the Tasmanian subspecies of the Wedge-tailed Eagle and the white morph of the Grey Goshawk from the raptor hide. Endemics including the Tasmanian Thornbill, Tasmanian Scrubwren, Dusky Robin, Green Rosella, and all four endemic honeyeaters are also commonly seen here. There is also a good chance of spotting Swift Parrots which breed on the property between September and January, as well as Flame, Scarlet and Pink Robins, and Beautiful Firetails. Learn of the ecosystem in which these birds live, and conservation efforts to protect these species and their habitats.
The property is also a great place to see Bennetts Wallaby, Tasmanian Pademelon, enormous eucalypt trees and tree-ferns, a magnificent stand of Blackwood trees, and some native terrestrial orchids that mostly flower between August and March.
The Inala birdlist and other fauna and orchid lists can be provided on request.
Please be aware that the Inala property can only be visited via a tour, or by guests staying in Inala's accommodation.
