Ever wanted to see a Rainbow Pitta hopping around the forest floor? Dreamed of seeing a Gouldian Finch in the wild? How about seeing your first Banded Fruit-dove amongst Monsoon Forests of Kakadu? Being a local bird photographer I have extensive knowledge of Darwin, Katherine, Kakadu and the Victoria River Regions. I can help you find and photograph that bird you've always dreamed of seeing, join Tracks Birding & Photography Tours for an unforgettable day out or the adventure of a multi-day Birding Tour around the Top End of the Northern Territory.


I can cater for custom photography and birding tours departing from most places around Australia, these include Cairns, Brisbane to Outback, Sydney to Outback and also Tasmania.
