Hi Kirri,

For some time now eBird has restricted access to the Explore feature, and many other areas, to eBird account holders. That’s not a problem as it is free to join.

Hi Kiri, 

I have stayed there for 3 days in January 2020 & January 2021. I stayed at Pitta Place cottage both times. I did several of the hotspots but best birding was on back deck as the owner is obviously a birder & has set up water for them about 4 m from the deck in a vine thicket. Paradise Riflebird, Regent Honeyeater, Rose Robin, Green Catbird, as well as the usual suspects all came in for a drink while I was there. 

As Russell said eBird has it all.

Hi Kirri


This is where eBird comes into its own. Whether or not your use eBird to record your own sightings doesn't matter - you can still find heaps of helpful information about sightings in an area. 


Just go to eBird and click on Explore Hotspots e.g.


I entered "Bunya" and had a load of results from the Bunya Mts (and a few unrelated ones with Bunya in the name!). 


There are more than a dozen hotspots for Bunya Mts National Park, and you can limit your search to show only those hotspots with recent checklists, or the hotpots with checklists in any February etc. THere is lots more you can do, but spend a little time on eBird if you haven't used it before and you will be surprised at how much helpful info is readily available.


Kind regards

Hi all
Just wondering if there were any location/ details of birds of this area (Bunya Mountains) NP ? Owls??
I’ve never been there Nd was curious if there’s any must see spots for birds at any of the campgrounds or surrounds...

Kirri 😊
