I'm assuming you mean Point Peron near Rockingham? If so, then no chance,
unfortunately! I suspect you would have to be very lucky to get Rock Parrots
anywhere between Perth and Bunbury but I could be wrong as I don't know the
Bunbury area that well
Wungong Gorge isn't as good as it used to be, but the wren and firetail should
be there somewhere. An alternative site for these (and other south-west
endemics) is Victoria Dam, which is probably better for firetail now. However,
Wungong may be more conveniently located for a side trip on the way to Bunbury.
