Bird-watching places in South-east Queensland

© Andrea Schafer

This page covers bird-watching in South East of Queensland. Another page covers the rest of the state.

The most important part is the directions as to how to get there – an UBD reference will do most of the work for the Brisbane area although we will try and expand the details as time permits.

Please email the Webmaster with write ups of your favourite places for inclusion, or give some extra information about an area already covered.
