I think I read somewhere that there actually were Mallee Fowl in the Brisbane Ranges before goldrush times.
Can anyone confirm this?

I've heard this said too, but I've never seen the primary reference for it ... and remain very doubtful. Malleefowl do occur on the coast in SW Victoria and SE Australia, but even there it seems to be in mallee.
