I have seen a pair in the same vicinity several years ago Anthea, and it was 
quite a thrill.

However, after spending more time in and around Ballarat, I realised that it's 
not uncommon to see a pair of Brolgas feeding in Lake Wendouree.  Again, it was 
very exciting the first time I saw them but it became quite a routine 

I haven't been to Ballarat for at least 3 years and I don't know if they are 
still frequenting Lake Wendouree.
