A friend with no computer access has asked me  if birding-aus members 
could help him with his forthcoming trip as follows:-

"My wife and I are leaving in April for an outback birdwatching trip 
across Australia from Byron Bay on the east coast to Steep Point on the 
west coast near Shark Bay for 5-6 months.   Enroute we will visit the 
following places:

via the Strzelecki Track, Marree, Oodnadatta, Ayres Rock, Warburton, 
Leonora, Wiluna, Mount Magnet, Geraldton, Houtman Abrollos Islands, 
Meekatharra, Newman, The Pilbara, Port Headland, Broome, Derby, Gibb 
River Road, Kunanurra, Halls Creek, the Tanami Desert to Alice Springs.   
Across the Simpson Desert via the Plenty Highway to Boulia, Mt. Isa, 
then to Townsville via Flinders Highway and down the eastern seaboard 
home to the Gold Coast in October l999.
