Message from Barry Davies, Gondwana Guides.

After 40 years as a guide, including 20 years as a birding guide, I have decided to hang up my binoculars and retire. Therefore, I will no longer be taking bookings for birding tours.

I would like to thank all my clients for trusting me to share with you the wonderful birds, other wildlife, forests and landscapes of Australia.

Gondwana Guides will continue under the stewardship of other enthusiastic people but with a different focus and objectives. Watch this space for developments.

It was a pleasure traveling and birding with you. That is great about it being a record-setting trip!

Ted Cable - USA, February 2015 (228 Species in 5 days in South-east Queensland)

Thank you very much. It was a wonderful introduction to the world of birding trips. On all occasions we had good company, good food and a comfortable bed. Thank you for your gentle and effective leadership.

Elizabeth Mackenzie - Sabah, 2015

I just wanted to thank you very much for what was the highlight of my recent Australian visit. It was not only the birds, but your knowledge and enjoyable company that made it this way. I surely will contact you again next time I am in the area.
