Castlemaine District is one of BirdLife’s newest branches, having been formed in 2018. The area boasts several Key Biodiversity Areas and many birding hot spots such as Rise and Shine Reserve located between Daylesford and Newstead.

Over 200 species have been recorded in the Mt Alexander region, including Brown Treecreeper, Diamond Firetail, Powerful and Barking Owl, Hooded Robin and some cryptic species such as Speckled Warbler and Painted Button Quail.

Bring water, snacks, binoculars, hat, sunscreen and sturdy shoes.
