Hi Tom,

as others have suggested, Chiltern and surrounding area is a good stopover for birds. In the surrounding area there are a lot of wineries and good restaurants. Sounds like you are planning on doing the trip over the Easter weekend (Friday - Monday) , which means you really need to book accomodation. I wouldn't plan on rolling into Sydney on April 1, half the city will be in their cars trying to get back home on the Monday afternoon. It is also School holidays in Victoria (Mar 29 - Apr 14). NSW holidays don't start till April 13. If you are travelling a little later you could look at taking the King's highway from Canberra into Bateman's bay and stay on the NSW south coast and travel to Sydney up the Prince's Hwy. Plenty of options to stay there, the coast between Bateman's Bay and Ulladulla is very scenic. Pretty Beach and Depot beach both have cabins where you can stay on the edge of the National Park, though it's a bit of a drive to find a restaurant. You can just about guarantee not getting accommodation there till after Easter. Both places are good spots to see Kangaroos though and there are some walking trails with good birding as well as shorebirds on the beaches.
