Birdwatching

On the 5th Sunday of each month when it occurs, Freedom Charters run the Eden Pelagic Bird Watching trips which attract bird watchers from all over Australia. The trips have developed a great following and amongst them some very experienced and knowledgeable bird watchers. Newcomers are always welcome and the boat is also available for full day hire for bird watching groups and associations.

Accommodation packages can be arranged which include 2 or 3 nights accommodation, 1 or 2 full days bird watching and fully catered breakfast, morning tea & lunch. See prices and packages for more information.
