David Stewart has a number of CDs and tapes covering Northern NSW and
Queensland:  I used his "Voices of 
Subtropical Rainforest" CD to get my ear in before going to Lamington,
and found it very helpful.  He also has a cassette specifically for
Lamington (should be available from the shop at O'Reilly's, and possibly
Binna Burra) and two cassettes "Queensland's Wet Tropics and Great
Barrier Reef", though I haven't listened to these.

Also quite good are the Listening Earth CDs by Andrew Skeoch and Sarah
Koschak:  Their "A Walk in the
Rainforest" CD was helpful for tropical Queensland birds, though I didn't
have time to listen to it as much as I would have liked.  Their website
has detailed field notes for the CDs which are terrific, giving the times
within tracks for particular birds and location details.

and Birds Australia (
have these and other bird call CDs and tapes for sale.
