Are there supposed to be Brolga around Brisbane (Qld)?

My father telephoned last night to say that he saw a single bird near the
South Pine River (as it North Pine? Ooops).  Most locals will know the
spot  -it's where the Ospreys nest right beside the freeway, just south of
the bridge over the river.  I think the suburb is Bald Hills, or it used
to be.  There is a new wetland area near the bridge - close to Deepwater
Bend.  The wetland has a decent boardwalk, and the brolga was near there.

Is this an unusual record for the area?
