Easy track
Starting from Broome Bird Observatory, Roebuck, this walk takes you on a short circuit, providing factual information about the native bird species. This walk is a little gem for wildlife enthusiasts. It follows a setting through savannah woodland that hosts a number of bird species, such as red-backed and variegated fairy-wrens, Rufous Whistlers, Pied Butcherbirds and Grey-crowned Babblers. There are also reptiles that are scatted throughout the walk, including dragon lizards and bluetongues. The observatory is a non-profit organization; there are volunteers that can inform you more about the birds in the area, in addition to the signage that is provided. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
