Hi Bruce,

Try Damian O'Connor in Tasmania - +61 427 657 036 or 

If you are working with horses, you may already know this but we've had an 
outbreak of equine influenza here in Australia and movements of people who are 
working with horses may be restricted.  I don't want to put you off but you may 
wish to look further at the following site

To gain further information about the quarantine restrictions currently here.  
I found the following which may or may not relate to your visit.
Why are movements and events being restricted?
The movement of horses and donkeys, and the holding of equestrian events are 
being restricted to help stop the spread of equine influenza. EI is very easily 
spread by contact between infected horses, and by people with infected 
clothing, tools and equipment, and vehicles. It is important that horse 
movement restrictions are taken seriously. You can be fined and even given a 
jail term for breaching movement restrictions.
Movement restrictions that apply to your State or Territory
Anyway, you are heading to two incredibly spectacular places, both with great 

Enjoy your visit.

and working with the horses here in Victoria during the current breeding season 
as vets. We will finish in February and will take a few weeks to relax and look 
around before we leave your country. I will be with my family in Tasmania the 
first week of March and in Port Douglas the following 2 weeks. I would be very 
interested in a pelagic birding trip and wonder if anyone can point me towards 
any possibilities. I have not had very good success finding anything on the 
internet.> > Cheers,> > Bruce Christensen>
