I saw a pair of Wedge Tailed Eagles attending a nest last summer quite nearby, so they are definitely in the area.  The nest was in a tree on top of a ridge and was observed from a houseboat on the Hawkesbury.  No evidence of eggs/chicks, but they roosted near the nest one night and the next morning about an hour after dawn, I had the wonderful experience of watching 2 wedgies in a tree, two sea-eagles fishing, and a Whistling kite flying by - all at the same time.  The previous evening there had been a peregrine on a nearby rock.  I was raptorous.
