Bring your binoculars and your bird book. Birds come from all over the world to visit this coastal park. They rest and feed after their long flight from as far as Siberia and Alaska, passing through 22 countries. The park is 30 minutes from Adelaide. Entry is from the St Kilda foreshore or at the northern end from Thompson beach. The name Winaityinaityi Pangkara in the local Kaurna language means "a country for all birds and the country that surrounds these birds". The park is at the southern end of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF) which is used by more than 5 million birds every year. 27,000 of these birds stop and rest in the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary. Some birds live here all year round. There are 263 unique plant and animal species, adapted to living in the coastal conditions. Food is abundant on the tidal mud flats. The birds feed on insects, worms and small shellfish which live in the mud. It's also a fish breeding ground. There are threatened bird species such as the Curlew sandpiper, Ruddy Turnstone, Red Knot and Eastern Curlew. You can also see the mangrove trees which live in salt waters.
