Hi Shean

The Russet-tailed Thrush occurs much further south in NSW than Washpool and
is regularly seen and fairly common around the Barrington Tops area
(north-west of Newcastle). Last October, at one place in the Barrington Tops
area, I have heard both Russet-tailed and Basssian Thrushes calling at the
same time and at the same altitiude only metres from each other. A good
place for the Russet-tailed Thrush is at Copeland State Forest (just west of
Gloucester) where I have seen about half a dozen birds along the main track.
I have heard them near Gosford a few years ago and seen a picture of one
labelled in the Illawarra area (a little to the south of Sydney, if it was
correctly labelled). It can be a species easily over looked if one does not
know its call.
