Hi Michael,
Dollarbirds are common summer migrants to the NSW Central Coast, arriving in late September and departing with a southerly change in early February. Yes they would occur at Point Clare.They nest in hollows, high in eucalypts, often in dead trees, and the young leave the nest generally about the week before Christmas. There are many pairs feeding 2-3 sqwarking young  at the moment, the young often set up this continuous droning chatter, waiting for their parents to deliver the next meal.
