I recently drove back from Gladstone Qld to Quirindi NSW and saw a Jabiru in the river in Condamine, I woke the wife and told her, but she didn't believe.

So, I did a U-turn and drove back to the bridge and there it was, about 150 meters away from the bridge.

Has anyone seen one further South?

Hi

Not personally but there appears to be hundreds if not thousands of records south of Qld



from ALA

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

I'm shattered. I thought this one was a fair way down,,,,, but to have one near Mt Gambier is remarkable.

Regards Bob

I, like you, have always thought of it as a Northern Australian bird. Have to go a long way north in WA (where I am) to see one so it is somewhat surprising to see it goes so far south in the eastern states. Obviously the further south you go the less likely - some of the most southern records shown may be quiet old but it appears to be observed relatively often along the coast of NSW.

Saw a single bird in the paddocks at Mildura as a kid in the early 70's. It frightened the hell out of us. Saw Brolga more frequently though. Not often but every few years.
