Hi Jennifer,

We were in the same enviable situation as yourselves last year - every bird is 
a new one - fantastic!

There is loads of information about Brisbane birding spots - try and

on the Birds Queensland site - though I am finding this site a bit 
temperamental at present.

There is really too much to choose from here - our favourite was definitely the 
Mount Glorious area where we saw an excellent selection of doves, parrots and 
bowerbirds. The little cafe nearby had good birds too - Wonga Pigeons waddling 
around. And the Walkabout Creek Wildlife Centre run by the Queensland Parks 
dept, which is on the way to Mt Glorious, gives you amazing close up views of 
some of the birds in a walk through aviary as well a chance to see platypus and 
other things. Other sites recommended to us were JC Slaughter Falls and 
Sherwood Arboretum, and Manly for shorebirds. However I expect you will gets of 
other recommendations from locals who obviously know far more than we do!

We wrote a trip report which you may find of some interest at:

Have a good time
