Central West Queensland and Wide Bay

This region takes in a vast area from regional Queensland towns like Emerald and Rockhampton, to large National Parks such as Blackdown Tableland, Carnarvon Gorge, Nuga Nuga and the Great Sandy National Park that includes Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world.

Top hotspots:

Carnarvon Gorge

Superlative scenery and bushwalking with surprisingly good forest birds to enjoy

Emerald Botanic Gardens

Pleasant, shady and lush riverside gardens with mostly common birds

Injune Lagoon

Small nondescript waterhole on the edge of town with a surprising variety of birds
