Keith Martin and myself carried out fauna and flora surveys of what is now
the Mt Bundey Bombing Range (near the Arnhem Highway) in the mid-late 1980s.
I don't have a copy of the report unfortunately. However, species of
significance I do remember were Gouldian Finch, Rufous Owl, Toothless
Catfish (Anodontiglanis dahli), and Fawn Antechinus (Antechinus bellus).
