FOR 2021 & 2022

Spring/early summer bookings: due to the high demand of our services from September to December there will be no exclusive bookings — we will take up to four birders. It may be that no one else is looking for your dates, in which case you will have the booking on your own. Outside that timeframe, AOS is willing to have birders join forces to save costs. Please indicate that you are happy to have others join you when booking. If you would prefer to have an exclusive booking (outside the spring timeframe) please indicate that you would prefer others not to join you. However, it is at AOS's discretion as to whether one or two other birders join an already booked date.

See fees below for shared costs.

One day’s birding plus spotlighting for plains-wanderers, quail, native mammals etc: $720.00 AUD *

Thereafter the cost is:
AUD $615.00* per day if birding in the Deniliquin district.
AUD $720.00* per day in areas outside of the Deniliquin district, e.g., Chiltern, Ouyen etc.

AUD $525.00 if going out just for an evening. Usual starting time is 5 pm during the daylight saving period and 4 pm outside that timeframe.

* The cost can be shared by up to three birders. For example, $720 AUD (first day of sample itinerary) if shared by three birders is $240 AUD per person. A fourth birder also pays $240 AUD.

Note: Those birders who had booked a 2020 personal tour and were not able to get to Deniliquin due to Covid 19 restrictions will only be charged the 2020 price if they do a personal tour any time in the future.

Motel charges and food are not included in the above costs. Clients will need to pay for the guide's accommodation and meals when away from Deniliquin. In country Australia three-star motel charges for a twin/single room are around $120.00 AUD. An all-inclusive price can be organised.

The Riverside Caravan/Cabin Park has a range of cabins as well as areas for vans and camping (+ 61 (0) 3 58811 284). E-mail:

Payment: For small personal tours (1-3 days), payment is due when booking (negotiable).

Overseas clients: EFT (wire transfer) is our preferred method of payment, however, a bank draft in Australian dollars is acceptable if you choose not to transact an EFT.

Contact AOS for account details for an EFT.

Meals: Unlike our away from the Deniliquin district scheduled tours, such as Far North Queensland, Central Australia etc, meals are not provided on personal tours. However, meals can be organised for larger birding tour groups. Contact Patricia if your tour requires catering.
