Thanks Ian & John etc. Yes the species has been rarely recorded wild locally e.g. at Roses / Rowes lagoon on 31-3-1986. Also when I lived in Brisbane 1979 to 1983 the species was not there but now is in abundance (in some parts). Apologies for my wording error in the last message "I wonder whether any other the former captive Magpie Geese there, survived the fire" was meant to be "I wonder whether any of the former captive Magpie Geese there, survived the fire". I would have doubted that any had but did not know.
