Hi Mike
I have never stayed at O'Reillys but camped in the National Park camping area 100metres from the guest house. As far as I was aware the guesthouse is surrounded by National Park so you are free to bird anywhere around that area. It is a few years since i have been there though so If anyone knows differently to that please let us all know!

Superb Lyrebird is often also seen at Ku-ring-gai Chase NP in Sydney's north if that is a more accessible spot.

Hi all,

I am planning a birding, mammal and cetacean trip from the UK this July/ August with my family; much of the plan is completed and we are have arranged some guiding in the Cairns area.

We are going to do Lamington alone and I would appreciate advise on where best to stay. O'Reillys is a bit out of budget, being the four of us, but we know there are some species in that area we would like to get.

If we stayed somewhere else ( not yet decided where and any ideas appreciated ) do you know if it is still possible to bird in the O'Reillys area? On our wish list would be Alberts of course.

We are also going to be with friends in Sydney; I have been trying to locate gen on the possibility of catching up with Superb Lyrebird; any help including Sydney generally would be appreciated; internet data for this are seems a little bit light compared with other areas.

If you can help in any way maybe you can email me at

Kind regards,

Mike Collard
