Bird Watching in the Hawkesbury

The Hawkesbury is an area rich in birdlife. There are literally hundreds of different varieties of native birds including water birds.
You can experience some of our bird either by bushwalking in any of our National Parks, or by spending time at our many lagoons and wetlands.
It is worth a visit to the Hawkesbury where you can take time to sit, look and listen to the wonderous sounds of our abundant birdlife.
