My list would be :-)

Broome sewage ponds
Crab Creek Broome
Lake Eda Broome
Lake Campion Broome
Nimilaica Claypan Broome

followed by :

Broome Bird Observatory grounds
Roebuck Plains Broome
Broome port
Roebuck Bay Broome
Broome golf course

Seriously, Broome is an excellent place to bird. I guess that is why I have been there more than 20 times.

For WA, my top five would be

Kununurra / Wyndham
Albany (including Cheyne Beach / Waychinicup)
Pinjarra / Mandurah (especially Lake McLarty)

Also worthy of mention are Abrolhos Islands, Dryandra State Forest, Carnarvon / Shark Bay, Fitzgerald River, Kimberley Coastal Camp, Stirling Range / Porongorups, Port Hedland.

For Australia, it would be :

Atherton Tablelands, Cairns, Daintree Qld
Broome WA
Kakadu NT
Werribee Vic
Kununurra / Wyndham WA

Also very much worth a mention are Lamington NP Qld, Cape York Qld, Hattah Kulkyne Vic, Gluepot SA, Capertee Valley NSW.
