Maningrida: Events

Arnhemland Bird Week

The annual Arnhemland Birdweek is hosted by the Arnhemland Barramundi Nature Lodge each "Dry Season". Experienced bird guides are adept at locating and identifying many of the 250 species that can potentially be found around the Maningrida area. Due to the remoteness and diverse range of untouched habitats found in this area the full birding potential and range of species is still to be discovered. This is one of Australia's true pristine birding frontiers.

Visiting birders are guided by highly-regarded ornithologist Johnny Estbergs.
In 2008, the first Arnhemland Bird Week marked the start of collaboration between Charles Darwin University and the nature lodge aimed at increasing our understanding of the birds of Arnhemland, developing indigenous avitourism training and increasing tourism visitation to the NT
