THE GOONDIWINDI REGION lies in the heart of the Brigalow Belt, on the border between Queensland and New South Wales. It’s a place where the tropical north meets the temperate south and the wetter conditions of the east blend with the arid west. Where streams merge into rivers before breaking out into a lazy inland delta of billabongs, anabranches and flood runners. It’s an area diverse in habitat and home
to a rich array of birds, with over 200 species identified.
