Dear Birding Aussers

I've been following Birding Aus since before my first visit to Australia in 
1999 and you're always so helpful. I hope somebody might be able to point me in 
the right direction.

A few requests for recent information for my trip in July-August - I know you 
get a lot of these, so thank you for reading. I'm doing the standard 
Darwin-Kakadu-Victoria River route, then spending some time near Cairns before 
driving to the Brisbane area with 3 days in Lamington and a wedding at Uki (N 
NSW). I have the 2nd Ed. Thomas & Thomas and the excellent new Dolby & Clarke 
for guidance but would welcome any up to date info on a few particular species. 
If anyone can supply any information, I'd be most grateful. The species are:

Darwin area:
Chestnut Rail - Buffalo Creek and Middle Arm still the best sites near Darwin?

Brisbane area:
Powerful Owl - Slaughter Falls still the best near Brisbane? Possible at 
Marbled Frogmouth - a good site near Brisbane or should I find them at 
Asiatic Dowitcher - at Toorbul, is that the main roosting site commonly known 
as Pelican Point mentioned in Dolby and Clarke?

Lewin's Rail - difficult, I know

Darwin, Cairns or Brisbane:
Aus Painted Snipe - hahaha yes, I know they're tricky but I have to ask

Any advice, gratefully received and if I can ever return the favour, do get in 
touch. Thank you for reading this far.
