G’day, my name is Steve Grainger, a professional birding guide with over 15 years of experience taking guests on extended and day birding adventures
I am the Owner and Lead Guide of ‘Tropical Treks Birding Adventures’ based in Noosa Heads, Queensland, Australia (a region where over 40% of Australia’s bird species are found).
My knowledge stems from a lifetime of living and working in the Australian Bush. I volunteer with several conservation groups including Northern Gulf Resource Management on birding, mammal and reptile surveys within Aboriginal Lands and Agricultural properties.
I also volunteer with Birdlife Australia in providing educational tours of Mary Cairncross Reserve and surveys of the Yandina Wetlands, on behalf of Unity Water on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
My favourite Australian place to visit is Cape York, as I have over 35 years of adventures on ‘The Cape’ and know this region like the back of my hand.
I have travelled to many places in the world in search of wildlife adventures, including Nepal, Turkey, Egypt, UK, Thailand, Middle East, Europe and more.
My professional accreditations include Ecoguide (Australia), Senior Savannah Guide and Wet Tropics World Heritage Guide. I also hold Wilderness and Remote First Aid certification.
