Yes indeed Matthew. I am reminded of the helpful 2009 series which was intended as an introduction to Canberra’s traditional birdy spots. In the below snip the right hand part of the text will be beyond the scope of a narrow screen view, and the Painted Snipe will be even harder to find

I don't knowhow many are familiar with it, but Norgrove Park, part of the Kingston Foreshore development, has quite a nice bird population (despite construction still ongoing around the area).
There is currently a very cute family of Dusky Moorhens as well as some juvenile Purple Swamphens. There were some Chestnut Teals recently and an ongoing population of common water birds, Welcome Swallows, Reed Warblers and others. Various parrots are regular visitors, as are pelicans, cormorants and herons.
Well worth a visit.
