In my experience, green catbirds are prolific in and around the Maiala NP
picnic grounds and forest walks at Mt Glorious.  I've seen them there
making a show of themselves in a large fig directly over the main road
opposite the picnic area (slumming with a bunch of female and non-breeding
satin bowerbirds). There are usually lots along the walks as well.  If you
have trouble seeing them in the rainforest itself, you should have a good
chance of spotting one on the fringes when the figs are fruiting
(?October).  But they should be in evidence this time of year -- I've seen
them at Easter.

Good luck

My particular frustration is Green Catbird. 
I have never seen it in the Rainforest despite many , many excursions to
seek it out in the SE Border Ranges of Qld, particularly around
Springbrook. I hear it call, ever so close, and yet I never see it. 
Please give me some expert advice
