My husband and I went on the Friday birding trip in Feb 2017 with Del and had an absolutely fantastic and highly successful day. Del really knows where different species hang out and took us to many different places to find them. His knowledge of birds, wildlife and the area is amazing. The Mossman/Port Douglas/ Daintree area is a great... More

I spent a day with Del traveling to many different environments. (From the coast, urban areas, golf courses, through farm land, to high in the mountains and to the shores of a huge lake). We saw many, many species of birds. A most enjoyable and informative day.

I had a great day birding with Del - I gave him a wish list of birds I wanted to see and he was able to show me most of them. He was extremely generous with his time and knowledge and provided a real insight into the area, and particularly the birds. I will never forget my first sightings of... More

Three years ago my wife and I spent a day birding with Del, this time we took the Mt Lewis half day tour hoping to see a variety of new birds. Del did not disappoint, 13 lifers in one day! The icing on the cake is of course Del, his knowledge of birds, understanding of the bush and how easily... More

We booked this tour to see birds in the Mossman region. In fact we saw a lot of birds but most of them out of the car window. We would have loved to have a bit of walks and experience the environment.Most of the time Del did not switch on the aircon so it was terribly hot in the car.... More

We were in Australia for a birding holiday. As we were spending a few days in the rain forest lowlands, we booked for Del's full-day excursion to the drier savannah woodlands. We saw lots of interesting birds and we enjoyed Del's company and commentary. We appreciated that Del stretched out the day until the late afternoon light was no longer... More

The focus of my Australian travel experience was to see the beautiful creatures that fill the air and the sea. I spent quite a bit of time searching out a guide during the planning stage and couldn't be more thrilled in finding and experiencing a tour with Del. Del has extensive ornithological experience. He has an in depth knowledge of... More

My wife and I had a truly memorable 1/2 day tour (7 hours!) with Del to Mt Lewis. Del went out of his way to ensure that not only did we see as many birds as possible, but also did his best to ensure that we had a really good education in identifying similar looking birds. I can not rate... More

Del has an Australian wide reputation as one of the.best birders in the country. He guides birding groups from other countries, notably the audubon society from Oregon. Over the day we drove about 100 km and covered port douglas town, beaches, Lake Mitchell, Mountain region. And rain forest. We saw 81 species and 3 rarities. He's patient, knows just where... More
