If you love bird watching the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary presents an exciting new opportunity to explore and appreciate birds in their natural habitat.
The Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary is being created to help protect resident and migratory shorebirds that gather along the coast of Gulf St Vincent in the north-west of Adelaide and will cover a 60 kilometre stretch of coast, from the Barker Inlet to the township of Port Parham.
Creating a safe haven for migratory and local shorebirds, the Bird Sanctuary will help improve the water quality, protect against the impacts of climate change and provide opportunities for local and international tourism.
The full creation of the national park for the Bird Sanctuary is expected to be complete by late 2017, watch this space for updates and news. You can catch a glimpse of the shorebirds at St Kilda Beach and Thompson Beach.
The park is located north-west of Adelaide. The sanctuary is not yet officially open but you can visit at St Kilda Beach and the northern gateway at Thompson Beach.
