Yes all the streets in Longreach are named after birds but they weren't so easy to find...until we found the Iningai Park Nature Reserve which, frankly, could do with some investment...
We didn't get a lot of joy when we asked the local Info Centre staff about birding spots apart from "go the edges of town". (Winton, by contrast, was terrific! - Longreach, be like Winton!). Maybe big ticket items like the Stockman's Hall of Fame keep everyone occupied. So we turned to eBird, as you do, and Iningai featured (see here for eBird, and here for a brochure about the Park).
We made three visits, two in the evening, and one in the morning. All were very fruitful in terms of species seen. As in Winton days earlier, cockatiels and budgies were in flocks.
So were woodswallows - white-browed and white-breasted - as well as several others.
Not to mention the usual birds of prey, waiting for the next feed.
But it was also the natural environment that excited us: the parkland was beautiful in both morning and evening light.
The real disappointment, however, was that even though some investment had previously been made (signage, seating and so on), this has really deteriorated to the point where most is unusable. We thought this was a lost opportunity for Longreach.
As birders, we would love to return to Iningai and see the fruits of more investment into this beautiful resource. Let's hope the town that has named its streets after birds can invest in their home.
