Mike, when you are crossing the "Nullarbor", make sure you do a side trip up to Cook. That takes you into the real Nullarbor and you have a chance of flushing a Nullarbor Quail Thrush or two. The Indian Pacific calls into Cook, so if you get your timing right, you can see it in the wild.

Regards, Laurie.

If you are travelling between WA & NSW, I suggest you spend a few days at the Eyre Bird Observatory (below the coastalescarpment), near Cocklebiddy (about 250 km west of the WA/SA border). You'll see a broad range of mallee woodland birds, coastal dune species, seabirds and waders within walking distance of the observatory. More arid-zone bird species will be seen on the
open tablelands above the coastal escarpment.

You will need to inform the observatory warden beforehand of your intended
arrival. Contact details can be found on Eyre's website:

Hi Mike,

If you are currently confused by waders, I would doubly recommend ending up at the Broome Bird Observatory. Not only are there great birds like Yellow Chat on their doorstep, but you can do a tour where they show you the waders and teach you how to identify them. It really is the best place in the
whole country to learn.

My wife & I are about to caravan to NSW from WA & we`re wanting current information as to where the best birding areas are?? We`re going
throughout the state.A LIST OF THE BEST 5-8 would be great.We are
in all sorts but trend away from waders as they make it so
confusing....we`re reasonably new at it

After all the rain in western NSW how soon would birds go out there to
breed etc??

Looking forward to your replies & thank you in anticipation

                      Regards   Mike & Marilyn Overheu
