My wife and I are visiting this spring (your fall). We will be in Tasmania 
(4days), Melbourne (4days), Sydney (5days) and Cairns/Port Douglas (7days). I 
am not a birding fanatic but like to see as many species as possible in each 
place we visit on our trips. Our itinerary does not allow for a full day of 
birding in each location; my wife sleeps in until about 9:00am so most of my 
birding is on the fly  from sunrise until 8:30 or 9:00.

I'm looking for some local "hot spots" (parks, lakes, marshes, etc) that I can 
hit for a few hours in the mornings, either alone or with some one who knows 
the ropes.

We are also spending 3 weeks in New Zealand, driving from the south end of the 
South Island to north end of the North Island. We have a little more time to 
explore but my birding would basically be the same as above. If anyone has 
contacts or site information for New Zealand, please advise.
