I have a question about finding Gouldians in the autumn. 

I intend to do an inland car-trip in April via Alice, Mt Isa and so forth,
attempting to pick up things from the Centre I haven't seem before, and then
back down through SW Queensland and NW NSW.

I'd also like to try for Gouldians, but I know they're a good deal north of
route I intend to go and also I don't know how easy or difficult it is to
find them at that time of year.


1. Is is at all possible to find Gouldians in the autumn (do they come in to
drinking holes, or are they widely dispersed).

2. Where should I go, I could go up to the Katherine area and ask the
researchers at Edith Falls for info (are they still there?); or what about
this Booroloola place that Thomas and Thomas mention?, or are they Lawn Hill
NP? and what's the road like up there?

Information from Gouldian experts gratefully received.
