At North Farm, we are blessed to live in a beautiful wildlife corridor, complete with an incredible array of bird life.
In 2016, an experienced birdwatcher came to stay with us on Retreat and documented his species sightings over 3 days. As a real treat for us, he compiled a list of 56 species of beautiful birds that visit our patch of paradise.
Jen still has that precious handwritten text today…
Spend a few minutes with us immersed in morning birdsong
as you browse our list of feathered friends…
During this video, you’ll hear:
Rainbow Lorikeet (loudest as always)
Noisy Friarbird (we suspect)
…and a rare species of…goat!

We are also blessed to live within ‘cooee’ of the Dorrigo National Park, where they have a wonderful – and wheelchair accessible – ‘Walk with the Birds’ Boardwalk where you and your tribe can discover some of the 130 bird species that have been recorded in Dorrigo. Accessibility is described as ‘easy’, so allow yourself at least 30 minutes to meander in this paradise.
There is a branch of BirdLife Australia in the Northern Rivers, so check out their website for even more information about the rich diversity of beautiful birds in our region. The Bellingen, Dorrigo, Coffs Harbour and Sawtell regions have plenty of bird-watching opportunities. Click on each individual link for more information, and check out the videos below:
