There is a very pretty map of the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG) found on this site.
However, It only gives major landmarks.
A larger map with all the section numbers is at
however it contains few names.
And, here you go again, Geoffrey, assuming your readers have been here for all of the past four years and have the same access to said archives as yourself.
The Kiosk at the ANBG (already written in full, as is correct) is a really good place for information, their phone number is 6250 9540.

A search in the archive for ‘Tom Green Seat’ provides details of its location and placement, just 4 years ago. There have been many references to it since then. Would anyone be happier with ‘’along the gravel path north of the kiosk’’?
I have a slight problem with this chatline. Many (perhaps most) of the contributors have been around this region for a long time, know each other well and know the local lingo/acronyms/shorthand for species. There appears to be an assumption that all readers do, or ought to, know exactly what/where they are talking about. Outsiders must feel, sometimes, that they are just that... outsiders, hearing but not being a part of someone else’s private conversation.
Having said that, the information that has been generously given to me by COG members when requested has invariably been useful, to which I owe them a million thanks.

No special Whistler for me, but 6 green Satin Bowerbirds feeding at the northern end of the rainforest gully and a further 3 in the vicinity of Tom Green's seat, incl. 1 bird with a blue bottle cap trying to impress another bird. Also again 3 Rose Robins in total in and around the rainforest gully (today only heard, but over recent weeks also seen a couple of times).
