I looked up the Atlas of Living Australia to see where they record Greater Gliders. They have some 19,000 records of the species which is a pretty good sample. At a very small scale the Gliders are in this area.
However zooming in shows that they are not too close to the Turner Bowlo.
Using Google Earth the closest record held by ALA is about 24km in a straight line from Turner. Also, looking at the record more closely it is a Museum record 'collected' in 1955.
In the same way as Quolls have been found in Belconnen in the medium past it may be possible that a particularly bold and/or hungry Greater Glider has glided across from the Brindabellas to Black Mountain or Mount Ainslie. Alternatively one wonders if the National Zoo had more Greater Gliders than is now the case? I suspect the Zoo is just about within commuting range for the Turner bird.
