Nick Livanos and I will be spending 2 weeks birding around the above mentioned 
areas from the 8th Novemeber.
This is our first trip 'north' and want to see everything these areas
have to offer. We're mainly focusing on the Mackay area with many local species 
being ticks for us.
We're desperately seeking local contacts who can give us the best spots and 
maybe/possibly/hopefully show us around.
Of course we'll take any information we can get so feel free to send me your 
lists and sightings.
Our plan is to spend 2 days driving to Mackay via the inland route, 4-6 days in 
the Mackay area (birding within 150km), 2-3 nights in Rockhampton and the 
remaining time around Sunshine coast / Brisbane area.
My appologises for the following list but these are our target species. Some 
maybe ridiculously out of range or very hard to find but we're hopeful.
