I have a couple of days pre-conference in Brisbane at the end of June and would appreciate some advice on where to go for a good variety of species. I will have just done 3 days birding in the Perth area before heading over to Brisbane, so ideally I'd like to visit locations with complementary bird lists.
I will arrive in the evening after dark (19:10 h) so don't know how feasible it is to pick up a car or even a small RV for a couple of days and still drive out of the city for an hour or two at night. Is it worth heading down to Lamington, or shall I just base myself in Brisbane and visit Mt. Glorious, the Lockyer Valley, Tinchi Tamba/Nudgee Beach etc. as day trips?
I'm tempted by that more sedentary option, but would I miss out on much by not doing a mini-min-road trip to say Lamington NP, Durikai SF and Lockyer?
Many thanks for your advice/opinions!
