Dear Moderator,

Because of bounces, I think that I had the wrong e-mail address in an earlier attempt to send this. If the earlier one (exactly the same e-mail)  got though, please ignore this one.

With continuing thanks for the service, regards, Angus Innes.

Dear Birding Aussies,


A Brit birding/naturalist friend of mine  (he is currrently acting as the ecological consultant to Rewilding Britain), and his non-birding wife, will be in Victoria between February 10th and 17th. 


They will spend the night of the 10th in Melbourne and then are looking for two stays of approx 3 days in two different locations that offer scenic interest and decent accommodation - and obviously for him, a reasonable chance of a range of Australian birds.  (They will hire a car)


His Australian birding so far has been dominantly in Queensland but limited (by his participation in conferences). 


Apart from fond memories the Great Ocean Road, and the vineyard areas, as an expat Queenslander, I am out of date with current offerings in the Sate of Victoria. 


  1. Is there somewhere near the Great Ocean Road that offers good Mountain Ash forest wiith big trees and reliable Lyrebirds (obviously with other woodland species as well) or would one have to go to another location?
  2. I was thinking the high country for a contrast of both scenery and birds, particularly as it is summertime. 

Any suggestions and advice on the birding/natural history front, and on places to stay, would be welcome.


Angus Innes
