BIRDWATCHING

Birds On Cheela

 There are over 270 bird species which have been documented in the Pilbara.  The vast plains, low shrubs, spinifex and sheltered tree-lined water courses on Cheela Plains  provide a number of safe habitats for our feathered friends to thrive.  We encourage our guests to complete an observation checklist which consists of 92 birds found on Cheela Plains.
