Peter Taylor

Peter is ‘our man in Australia’. Although originally from Stockport in the UK, Peter spent his teenage years at Adelaide in South Australia and has since birded extensively across this great continent.

For more than 20 years he has lived in the tall timber country of Manjimup (south of Perth), in Western Australia - a hotspot for endemic birds and plants. Having forsaken a comfortable career with the government to follow his true passion for birds and birding, Peter now works full-time as a naturalist and bird and wildlife tour guide.

A naturalised Australian, who emigrated as a child with his parents from the UK to Oz as ‘£10 Poms’ in the 1960s, he’s the perfect guide for Limosa’s tours Down Under. He has led our Eastern Australia tour annually for us since 2008 and also guided our trips to Northern and SE Australia, as well as our unique railway-based holiday across the ‘Red Centre’. Peter designed and led Limosa’s first Western Oz tour in 2009 and he looks forward to showing Limosa travellers his ‘home patch’ every year!
