Tasmania - looking for bird watching guide for day trips

We are touring Tasmania for 7 days next fall and are avid bird watchers. We are looking for bird watching guides either professional or hobbyists for day trips. We are interested in nature and wildlife overall but with a focus on birds. We have looked at Inala Nature Tours but unfortunately they are outside of our price range. We have not firmed up our itinerary as we are waiting to speak with potential guides, but we are flying into Hobart and are flexible. Many thanks for all suggestions

Contact Alan Gillanders at www.alanswildlifetours.com.au He is situated in Queensland but quite possibly knows someone he could recommend. Birds are his specialty and passion, but he is fabulous for any kind of wildlife if you are up his way.

jimpeskin - I have been directed to Birdlife Australia and just sent them an inquiry so you might try them as well.

eliztravels2 - thanks for the tip. it is a small world, Alan was our guide when we visited Atherton a few years back. Unfortunately he has been unable to provide any names except Inala Nature Tours which sound fabulous but unfortunately out of our price range. search continues
