Let's Flock Together: Shorebird Watch

From September to April each year up to 37 species of migratory shorebirds visit the Top End. They are extreme marathon migrants! Annually, they fly a 22,000 kilometre round-trip from their breeding grounds in the Arctic to the Top End and back again.

Join us for a short walk to watch these shorebirds feeding before their imminent departure. Learn about great knots, greater sand plovers, far eastern curlews and much more from PhD student Amanda Lilleyman, who studies shorebirds of Darwin Harbour.

Like birds of a feather, let’s flock together for our last chance of the season!


  • Please bring hat, sunscreen, water and binoculars if you have them (some will be available for use).
  • The walk is less than 1 km.
  • Morning tea will be provided.
  • We will meet in the carpark at the boat ramp.
