Celebrating an epic journey

36 species of migratory shorebird fly annually to Australia and New Zealand for their non-breeding, or overwintering, season, and breed in the northern hemisphere above the Arctic Circle. The route they take between their breeding and non-breeding grounds twice annually is called the East-Asian Australasian Flyway. Shoalhaven Heads is honoured to be a destination.
