Hi Bernie,

By far your best bet is the Brisbane Ranges - to the west of Melbourne.

I usually find that Nelson Track is the best. You'll need to park at the
start of the track and walk a kilometre or so until you get to a clearer
area on a crest. You'll know the site because there's a boot-cleaning
station there (to remove traces of Cinnamon Fungus). If you sit and wait
patiently here, you should be able to find a Spotted Quail-thrush. I'm sure
that there are other similar areas (look for tracks with crests and
ridgelines - the birds prefer this sort of location.

My name is Bernie O'Keefe and I am a member of Birdlife Australia.  I am
especially interested in Quail-thrushs.  I have photographed the Chestnut
breasted at Bowra and the Chesnut backed at Gluepot but I am having
difficulty locating the Spotted Quail Thrush in Victoria.  Can anyone please
give me advice as to where a reliable spot for these birds can be found. I
live in Melbourne.
Thank you
