Birdlife Ovens and Murray July outing: Livingstone National Park

Sun 7 Jul, 2024 | 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Date:  Sunday 7th July

Location:  Livingstone National Park, NSW

Time:  9.30am to 3pm (approx)

Meet:  9:30am at the carpark at the northern end of the park, via Wrigleys Rd, off of O’Briens Creek

Rd: https://maps.app.goo.gl/rc4zxqKvZNdieTHr6

Leaders: Darcy Creece (Sthn NSW Birds on Farms on behalf of Birdlife Ovens and Murray) and Sarah Danckert (Murrumbidgee Field Nats)

Details

  • It’s about a 1hr 15min drive to the meeting point from central Albury. The best route is to turn off the Olympic Hwy at Gerogery, and travel via Morven, Cookardinia and Mangoplah.
  • The carpark at Livingston NP is accessible via 2WD, but we plan to head further into the park, which will require a 4WD, so it is encouraged to bring one, and we will try to organise carpooling on the day for those who only have a 2WD.
  • The national park is hilly, so expect uneven terrain, but nothing too steep for the parts we’ll be doing on foot.

Please note: there are no amenities at the park.

Highlights

  • woodland birds such as robins, speckled warbler, white-browed babblers, and details of the local vegetation courtesy of the field nats.

Bring 

  • binoculars
  • notebook and pen/app  if you wish to record birds and/or plants
  • good walking shoes or boots
  • suitable clothing for the weather conditions
  • hat/beanie
  • morning tea
  • lunch
  • chair
  • water
