Round Hill – Easter campout

Fri 14 April 2017 12:00am

Kathy Walter & John Goldie

The Easter campout this year will be to Round Hill Nature Reserve in central NSW.  We should see a variety of western birds as there is a range of habitat types, including mallee, callitris and eucalypt woodlands.  Past COG trips have seen Malleefowl, Chestnut-backed Quail-thrush, Southern Scrub-Robin, Shy Heathwren, Gilbert’s Whistler and Spotted Nightjar.  There is always a slight chance of a Red-lored Whistler.

Round Hill is between Lake Cargelligo and Mt Hope and is 5+ hours’ drive from Canberra.   We will spend most of our time close to camp with perhaps a couple of short drives.  It will be a “bring everything” camp.

Please book a place on this outing with Kathy Walter or John Goldie on 6241 7639 or email The trip will be restricted to 20 participants and filled on a first reply basis. Detailed information will be provided to participants closer to the trip.
