I moved to the Gold Coast from Brisbane a few months ago and I am still trying 
to figure out where the birding spots are!  

I have found some good wetlands and reed beds in the Varsity Lakes Wetland 
Reserve behind the Casua Industrial Estate just off Casua Drive (which is a 
service road running parrallel with Reedy Creek Rd near the exit from the 
Pacific Motorway).  I have seen a couple of Jabiru in there, Yellow-tailed 
Black Cockatoos, lots of ducks and I reckon it has to be a good spot for crake, 
rail and bittern but I just haven't had a chance to check it out in the evening 

Another good spot that is local is the Federation walk along the Spit (opposite 
Sea World).  There should be some opportunities for waders and terns etc on the 
adjacent Broadwater.

Let me know if you need any further directions.
