I agree that the outflow at Queanbeyan can be good for this species.  Another local spot where I have on occasion spotted large numbers, including 66 in June 2014 is the Weston Creek Ponds.

A bit further South the water treatment Plant at Mallacoota regularly produces around 200 Pink Eared Duck.

The bodly patterned Pink-eared Duck often attracts interest among casual watchers and it is now a Canberra regukar although not appearing in the huge numbers one can find elsewhere. Perhaps the best local spot for occasional large numbers is the Quean beyean outflow pondage.  Yesterday Kelly Swamp offered a flock of 14 among sparse pickings from a waterfowl viewpoint
