The Festival was first held in 2010 as a community celebration of the remarkable diversity of birdlife on the island. The three-day Festival is jointly presented by the Bruny Island Environment Network, BirdLife Tasmania and Inala Nature Tours, drawing on the wealth of knowledge and experience of experts in these groups to provide both an engaging and educative immersion in the natural delights of Bruny.
Held every two years, the Festival has become a much-anticipated event by the community and visitors alike. Each Festival brings new features and long-term favourites. In 2024, the Festival will continue to build on the four key elements of Community, Conservation, Science and Creativity to further involve the people of Bruny and Tasmania in the many tours, walks, workshops, lecturers, markets and cultural celebrations that are the Festival.
Birds bring joy and interest to our lives; colour and music to our days. Humans all over the world have always had a fascination for birds. They are part of our cultures, our stories, our language and our technological innovations. Even as we have exploited them, we have simultaneously exalted them and throughout history, we have watched and wondered. Understanding birds helps us better understand the world we live in.
