Red Wattlebirds definitely migrate in flocks through the Blue Mountains.
Each autumn I see groups of up to 20 or so flying north with the
Yellow-faced Honeyeaters.

By the way, the honeyeater migration over my place has just about finished
now. I did have a few stragglers going over late last week. Also, at Yellow
Rock (in the Lower Blue Mountains) on Friday morning there were flocks of
Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters moving through and stopping to
feed on an infestation of lerps in the eucalypts recovering from the
December bushfire, along with very large numbers of Spotted Pardalotes.
