Waterfowl Hunting Safaris

Game bird shooting on the flood plains at Carmor Plains is exceptional. Geese and Ducks are very plentiful and flocks of up to 1000 birds can be seen at times. Magpie geese are our largest game bird with a wing span of up to 1 metre. There are 4 main variety of Duck which all offer great wing shooting and excellent eating qualities. The bird season varies year to year, however it is mostly from the end of August until the end of December. Access to the wetlands is greatly enhanced during August and September with the help of our airboat. This 400+ horsepower machine will take you to inaccessible swamp lands where the geese and duck flocks blacken the sky when they take flight!

Carmor Plains is a Photographer’s paradise, providing you with endless subjects. Wildlife such as crocodile, kangaroo, wallaby, goanna and countless varieties of wetland and forest birds are always willing to present themselves along the way.
