I guess (though you did not say so) the point to your note was that the bird was far inland (for that species), not that it was flying over a main road. I have certainly often seen Brahminy Kites over busy roads around Qld: (Wynnum, Cleveland, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast etc) but not away from the coast, except sometimes along the Brisbane River.

On Saturday (13 March) I was driving from Toowoomba to Brisbane.  I was surprised to see a Brahminy Kite soaring at low level over the Ipswich Motorway between Riverview and Goodna.
For Sydney readers (I don't know the other capitals well enough), this is the equivalent of seeing a BK over the M4 at Westmead.
