You’ll be driving down a well-maintained gravel road. The properties on both sides are fenced and for private use so you have to do your birding from the roadside. It’s a great place to bird though as the wide open grassy areas and sparser trees make it easier to find the birds. You can drive past a small pond a few km to a more densely forested area but I found the birdlife decreased from entering that area so we went back to the grassy area near the pond.
We made a couple trips to Mosquito Road with just Ina & me, then returned a couple days later with the Birds Queensland group which I will cover in a separate post.
Plenty of kangaroos so drive slowly, don’t add to the road kill!
We saw lots of Little Corellas & Galahs.
There was a tree that had a lot of Zebra Finches who sometimes came out to the wire fence to pose for photos.
Willie Wagtails are found here and basically all over Australia.
For me, the highlight was seeing wild Cockatiels. Cockatiels are very special to me, they are the first bird I had as a pet which ultimately led to my interest in birding and conservation.
