Driving Directions

Proceed to waypoint 74km west of Madura 16km east of Cocklebiddy on southern side of Eyre Highway. Located about 15km south of the highway.

The Eyre Bird Observatory lies within the Nuytsland Nature Reserve and was established as Australia's first bird observatory by Birds Australia in 1977. The observatory is a lovely old stone building within walking distance of the beach.
The building provides simple accommodation for visitors and staff. Two full-time wardens run the observatory and are kept very busy looking after visitors, conducting research and maintenance.

The observatory has three bedrooms and two sleepouts providing beds, mattresses and pillows for 15 people. Three meals a day are included in the booking fee. Visitors need to bring their own sleeping bag, pillowcase, towels, torch and, of course, binoculars. Day visits are possible for people in their own four-wheel-drive vehicles, but you should telephone first. As it takes three hours to do the return journey from the highway, an overnight stay is recommended.
