After an absence of about 10 years, I visited this National Park which is
about 3 hours' drive east of Melbourne.  I was very happy to find that there
are still plenty of Superb Lyrebirds and Bassian Thrushes to be seen as well
as good numbers of Pilotbirds.  There was even an Olive Whistler, hopping
across the Bulga carpark, after the thrushes and lyrebirds had left.

On the Grand Ridge Road, going from the Tarra Valley Picnic Area (as usual
much less interesting than the Bulga one) towards Morwell, I flushed about 6
Blue-winged Parrots.  The elevation above sea level here was approximately
500 metres.  I have only seen them at low elevations before.
