The 2003 edition of the estimable publication "Nature in Eurobodalla" classifies the Pacific Baza as a rare vagrant to the Shire. The 'old' Atlas of Australian birds shows records down to about 35 degrees S.

I was pleasantly but mildly surprised to watch for some time a party of
emu-wrens at Dolphin Point (by Burrill Lake) moving through banksias and
casuarinas some 2-3m from the ground, until they reached more typical
low dense heath.

I was rather more surprised to watch a pair of bazas working the canopy
at the rainforest crossing some 6km along Forest Rd from Kioloa. Unless
someone tells me otherwise (and I'm not essentially a coast person) I
reckon this is a long way south of their main range.
