Hi Deedee & Dick (?DD&D :-))
I've been with the Queensland Naturalists Club on excursions to
National Parks north and south of 1770,
ie Eurimbula and Deepwater NP respectively.
When are you going there?
If there is time I could send you photocopies of some of their reports.
Just a word of warning about the coast in that area, the biting midges
sandflies, =?noseeums) can be bad, use lots of insect repellent.
