Couldn’t be a barking owl (Ninox connivens)? By the way, haven’t seen any spotted-tailed quolls or their sign up there have you?

Hi Julienne. Have you listened to white throated nightjar? How does that compare? Or even Spotted could be a possibility?
Cheers Kathy

Dear COGites
Over the last 2 weeks I have heard a call I am not familiar with during my  evening walks at Hoskinstown east of Canderra. The environment is dry moderately timbered hilltop at the forest edge of Tallaganda Forest.
I find it hard to describe calls but here goes -
It starts with a few low  ooh ooh notes then winds up to higher pitched shoter ah ah. The single 5 or 6 second  call is repeated in 5 minutes
Last night I heard both an owletnightjar and a boobook call on same walk
I am not even sure it is a bird call but I suspect it is
Any clues all you clever birdwatchers?
