Bird Watching

Perfect for intrepid birdwatchers, this program will enable you to work alongside Centennial Parklands staff and Birding NSW, surveying the birds of the Parklands.

Centennial Parklands and Birding NSW have worked in partnership since 2009, making more than 800 entries on the database which is recognised in the National Bird Register.

Dates and times

These surveys take place on three consecutive Thursday mornings once a season in January, April, July and October.

Project overview

There are now 13 sites from which bird surveys are delivered. The sites boast a variety of Centennial Park environments and include Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub, Sandstone Ridge, pond edges and melaleuca and pine forest environments.

Data collected provides the Trust with valuable information about the Parklands' birds and their numbers. Over time this information will assist in managing issues related to the Parklands’ bird species.

In combination with the opening of the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub sites for monthly Bush Regeneration, Graeme Robinson, Allan Richards and Barry Ayres from the Birding NSW Amateur Ornithologists Club conduct tours and surveys in these restricted areas.
