Varied Sittella are just as hard to find around Townsville.   I Have only
had one siting in ten years and that was this year, on the 5th January
a group of 6 birds in the area at the back of Ross Dam, Kelso.

I have had more luck with Varied in the Eucalyptus Grandis forest 7 klm
to the west of  Paluma, this is one top birding location put it on your list 
of  places to visit.
