Well I can't guarantee that there isn't a spot in Oz with a higher
degree of diversity in ducks, teal, swans, grebes and cormorants etc
within a 20 km radius, but I would go out in a limb to assert that there
is probably not another metro region in Oz with such a diversity.
One thing I would say is that Perth certainly has the nicest, most
melodious cockatoos ...
