Hi Dr Darrell and Dan,

Both editions of Atlas of Australian Birds record sightings of Flame Robins in the Border Ranges (Qld NSW border) area.
The second atlas indicates the sightings were in the summer/autumn period.
There are no details on exactly where the Atlas sightings were made but I have recorded Flame Robin at Girraween NP.
I don't have the details of the date at hand but it was probably in the 1980s.
Girraween NP is not exactly Binna Burra but is in the same 'mountain' range and not too far from Binna Burra for a migrating Flame Robin.

Note: I hope no one takes this too much to heart but I would urge a deal of caution when consulting the 'Atlases'. These books are wonderful resources for birders but I have noted some possibility of mis-identification of certain 'difficult' species.
Female robins can be problematic but, fortunately, the Flame Robin I saw at 
Girraween was a male.
