I don't know if there would be enough bird species in one day to make an official outing in the area Martin has highlighted but I think it would be worth forming part of an outing say to Tallaganda Forest.  In the forest itself birds are often there but hard to see in the forest. It can be disappointing. Jenny Bounds ran a trip to TF some years ago. I found it very useful.
Individuals who do wish to bird watch along the Hoskinstown Rd could get additional species by stopping often. At the spot where Martin  (Martin's original message has a map attached)has marked Hoskinstown Road I have seen Southern White-face, Diamond Firetails and Flame Robins on both sides of the road.
Further along the road you can long the road I have seen Aust. Shelducks after rain and still further you can look down over Foxlow Lagoon. For the Lagoon you would need to go in the morning to have the sun behind you and take a scope.
The local landholder at Foxlow is know to be unwelcoming. It is strongly advised not to enter the property.
