opening. Papers addressing the theme of "Conservation of Australian Birds; 
Approaches, Projects and Outcomes" will be presented and discussed on 14-15 
August. All of this will take place at the Plaza Hotel, at the corner of 
Flinders and Stanley Streets. The Congress dinner will be held on Saturday

The Campout will be held from 16-20 August, based at Crystal Creek Community 
Centre, Mutarnee, 65 km north of Townsville. Subject to numbers, field trips 
will cover a variety of habitats, from the coast to the highlands, including 
rainforest, dry sclerophyll forest, coasts and wetlands. There are excursions 
planned for: Paluma National Park, Paluma township and Birthday Creek Falls,  
AWCs Taravale, Tyto Wetlands and Wallerman Falls. Information will also be 
available for self-guided birding excursions to many nearby areas. In the 
evening, enjoy some informative talks by locals with expertise in NQ's birds. 
The Crystal Creek Caravan Park, next door to the Community Centre, is the 
suggested camping venue, though other accommodation is available within a 30 
minute drive of Mutarnee.
