Birds of the Kimberley come in all shapes and sizes and the Broome region is regarded as the most significant site in Australia for shorebirds. Featured here is the gorgeous blue winged Kookaburra, spur winged Plover, the Great Egret, and the irresistible Tawny Frogmouth Owl. If you have a photograph you would like to share, we would love to hear from you! Check out our other gallery of wild birds at Kimberley Photos.

Broome has its own bird observatory, which is located on the shores of Roebuck Bay. The observatory is dedicated to the conservation of migratory shorebirds and they foster science-based study, public education and alliances with conservation organisations from the local to international level. Visit their website for more information on tours and the best times to visit.
