Hi Christina (long time no speak!!),

I would hit Sundown NP for Turq's - it's on the Qld side of the NSW border, 
west of Tenterfield & Stanthorpe. Best area for them I've found in Sundown is 
in and around that camp area in the south-west section of the NP - just turn 
west from Tenterfield & then north at Mole River, which is some 50-odd kms west 
of Tenterfield. The NP entrance to use to hit this particular spot is not too 
far along the road heading north form Mole River once you cross the Qld border. 
If you are lucky, you will have Turq's in the lovely grassy camp area itself - 
or around the little dam off to the north side of the rd into the camp area, 
about a km or 2 before you actually reach the camp area itself. This dam is 
well worth a late arvi or early morn stake-out if needed. For Eungella HE, you 
will most likely find them into the mistletoe at this time of year - that's 
when I got my first one in the 3rd week of June some years back!! Try the 
junction of Snake Rd-Dalrymple Rd, & up along Snake Rd itself. The mistletoe is 
pretty obvious & low down in the roadside trees there - good luck!
 For Cassowary, you would be dreadfully unlucky if you were to miss them around 
Mission Beach - but if you do miss out there, then hit Etty Bay, just south of 
Innisfail... For Albert's LB, I'd first hit the Border Ranges NP (NSW) , & then 
onto Lamington NP (QLD) on the O'Reilly's Rd, if you miss out at Border Ranges. 
At Lamington NP, anywhere in the last 5kms before you get to O'Reilly's itself 
should prove worthy. If you miss them there then you can still try Tambourine 
Mountain further north towards Brisbane... cheers,martin cachard,trinity beach,
