Now wending our way home to Melbourne via the coast and then the outback - woohoo! Our last two major birding destinations before we left the Wet Tropics were the TYTO Wetlands in Ingham and the Townsville Common...this is how they worked out for us. The crimson finch is a clue...
It was a long but enjoyable drive from Leeton through Forbes, Parkes, Dubbo and then on to Coonabarabran...the Newell Highway is not in the best shape, to be honest, with many worn parts, only exacerbated by heavy truck use. But all was forgiven when we got to Coonabarabran and found the Warrumbungles...
