I endorse Lawrie's sentiments re. the flowers in the Brisbane Ranges.  
Last Sunday we too saw most of those on his list, plus donkey 

Two weeks previously we saw spotted quail-thrushes, including the nest with 
two blotchey eggs.  Also saw a mistletoe bird, yellow-tufted 
honeyeaters, fan-tailed cuckoo, etc.  Brown tree-creepers are the 
scavengers of the Stony Creek picnic area.

Saw very few koalas, but didn't look very hard.  However, in past 
years we haven't had to look very hard.  We've always taken our 
overseas visitors there in the knowledge that they could spot koalas 
for themselves.

(Also saw a dead fish which must have been washed downstream from the 
Stony Creek reservoir.)
