Birds of the Cullendore High Country NSW

A few photos from our trip to Cullendore High Country at the top of New South Wales, just over the Queensland border. This property is a wildlife haven and we went in hope of seeing a Spotted-tail Quoll in the wild, a platypus or a wombat!!  These particular species eluded us as per usual, but the birding didn't disappoint despite the terrible drought and bush fires close by.  More photos to come along with macropod and insect list. (Post to be updated asap)
