Pelagic Birds Sydney
Over 200 of the world’s 350 species of seabird are seen in Australian waters. Pelagic launch trips to the continental shelf 30 km off Sydney are a good way to see these birds. From land, Magic Point and Mistral Point in Sydney are good viewing places for seabirds, especially during southerly storms.
