I may have missed it Charla, but when are you having your family
holiday? Some spots are better for birds/family holidays at different
times of the year.

The list is almost endless. try Cairns. Along the waterfront, around
the botanic gardens, followed by a morning trip on the Mangrove Man
bird boat trip on the Mossman river. With more time go to the
Atherton Tableland and visit the tourist spots and national parks.
Try South East Queensland. There are so many places between the Gold
coast and it hinterland, Brisbane and the Lockyer Valley and the
Sunshine Coast and the mountains just inland that if you don't see
well over 100 new birds things are not good.
At Bribie island, just north of Brisbane we often get than many
species by lunch time. 200 bird species during a couple of weeks
holiday is a reasonable expectation.
No doubt others who are more familiar with other areas will be able
to encourage you to visit their favourite place and no doubt many
are wonderfu places to bird also.

Hi folks -
Sorry if this is not appropriate (I'm only new to birding and to
this forum), but I have finally won the rights to pick a spot for
our family holiday and would love to spend it adding a few ticks to
my bird list.
We live in Alice Springs and I work bush, so have seen many Central
Australian birds, but that's about it. Can anyone recommend a good
spot elsewhere in Australia, preferably with some kid-friendly
water or bush and not too much focus on swamps and sewage ponds (or
I'll never get to pick again!).
Thanks in advance for your help. I'm enjoying my daily digest too -
