Birdwatching excursions for cruise passengers in Broome

The Australian Cruise Association will make a donation to the Broome Bird Observatory
A warden from the Broome Bird Observatory will speak at the closing breakfast at the Australian Cruise Association’s annual conference in Broome, in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, next week.

Support for the local community

Ceo Jill Abel said every year the ACA has a speaker from an organisation that provides support for the local community.

‘We have had some wonderful local speakers who have been able to make an important connection between our delegates and the destination,’ Abel said.

‘Last year in Mooloolaba, Queensland, we had a speaker from the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.’

One of the top migratory shorebird destinations

Now in its 30th year, the Broome Bird Observatory supports a range of research projects on migratory shorebirds. Its focus is on Roebuck Bay which is renowned internationally as one of the top five migratory shorebird destinations in the world. From here the birds embark on their long annual migration to northern Asia and Siberia.

The Observatory plays a key role in the Broome cruise industry by taking passengers on birdwatching excursions and showcasing Roebuck Bay.
