G'day all

My family and I are off on a 12 week caravan trip to WA and plan to tour up
the west coast to North-West Cape then back down through the Pilbara.

I would like any information on bush camping areas (national parks etc),
not-to-be-missed birding spots, places of interest to non-birding
teenagers, places to avoid at all costs...

The following are birds I haven't seen but appear possibilities where we
are going:  Thick-billed Grasswren, Grey Honeyeater, Yellow Chat, Ground
Cuckoo-shrike, Chiming Wedgebill, Chestnut-breasted Quail-thrush,
Rufous-crowned Emu-wren, Slaty-backed Thornbill, Slender-billed Thornbill,
Banded Whiteface, Pied Honeyeater, Burke's Parrot, Alexandra's Parrot,
Night Parrot, Inland Dotterel, Grey Falcon.  Any advice on these would be
most welcome.

I'll be atlasing as much as possible and will give reports when we get

While I think of it we will be crossing the Nullabor twice and plant to
spend a night at the Eyre bird observatory.  Can anyone give me advice on
birding opportunities on the Nullabor?

Many thanks
