Bird Observation in the Wolli Valley
The Wolli Valley is located in the inner south-west of Sydney.
As a relatively isolated bushland ribbon in a well-developed urban area, the Wolli Valley is an attractive haven for birds. It provides food, shelter, a passageway and resting place for migratory species and a niche in its own right for resident birds. It provides a major west-east corridor for migrants moving between the high country west of Sydney and the coast, and it serves as a significant stepping-stone across Sydney’s urban south for migrants moving north-south. The valley’s diversity and strategic location are reflected in the wide range of bird species to be found there.
