Of the 850 bird species in Australia, more than 300 species have been recorded in the Lockyer Valley’s diverse and easily accessible habitats which encompass wetlands, agricultural land, national parks and state forests. Many species found in the Lockyer Valley are migratory, so the birds you may see are continually changing. Some of Lockyer Valley’s most popular spots to find bird life include:

• Lake Clarendon (Black Falcon, Ground Cuckoo-shrike, Black-necked Stork, Blue-winged Kookaburra)

• Lake Galletly and Lake Lenore at the University of Queensland, Gatton campus (Red-rumped Parrot, Pink-eared Duck, Red-kneed Dotterel, Cotton Pygmy-goose, Magpie Goose)

• Lake Dyer (Plum-headed Finch, Caspian Tern)

• Glen Rock State Forest (Glossy Black Cockatoo)

• Lake Apex and Lake Freeman (153 species have been recorded including Latham’s Snipe, Royal and Yellow-billed Spoonbill, Black-fronted and Red-kneed Dotterel, Australasian Dater, Whistling Duck).

An excellent Lockyer Valley Bird brochure has been developed by Birdlife Southern Queensland and Friends of Lake Apex. Pick up a copy from the Visitor Information Centre.
