That sounds like a great trip Harry.

Just a few comments to your list as it relates to the Northern Beaches of 

-Australian Brushturkey
-Eastern Whipbird
-Variegated Fairy-wren
-Scarlet HE
-Robins (Rose)
If you're heading to Warriewood, you could see all these at Irrawong Reserve, 
which adjoins the wetlands <1km.
The first three are definites, the last two are quite possible.

-Little Penguin
By the harbour around Manly, Little Manly, Collins Beach area. I've never 
actually gone looking for them as I usually
see them on the water either in Middle Harbour or Pittwater where they are a 
regular occurrence.

-Pacific Baza
-Pacific Koel
-Channel-billed Cuckoo
It's probably still a bit early for these. They come to the Northern Beaches in 

-Glossy Black Cockatoo
In the area around Kimbriki Waste Recycling Centre and the Terrey Hills area. 
Usually very conspicuous when in flight.

-Australian King Parrot
Most places on the Northern Beaches, though not as common as the Rainbow 

-Australian Golden Whistler
Narrabeen Lake. It's worth a walk around the lake, 8.5km for a full circuit, or 
just go out and back along the
Southern shore between Jamieson Park and Middle Creek Reserve. Lots of birds to 
see along that stretch.
