Hi All,

I managed to get to Gloucester Tops to look for the Rufous Scrub-birds and 
Olive Whistlers over Easter.  Unfortunately I found the information regarding 
their location to be a little confusing.

Many previous reports indicate that Rufous Scrub-birds have been seen 
approximately 1km along Kerripit Road.  After driving along this road for about 
1km (from where it exits Gloucester Tops Road) I didn't come across any 
suitable-looking habitat.  However, there is a gate across the road a few 
hundred metres further on, and access further along the track from here is by 
foot only.

After a few hundred more metres the track finally reaches an area of Antarctic 
Beech forest where there is some interpretive information about Barrington Tops 
National Park.  My impression (from examining topo maps of the area) is that 
the Rufous Scrub-bird "site" is approximately 1km walk further west from this 
area.  Is this correct?

Any information would be greatly appreciated, as I would like to visit the area 
again later in the year.
