Abstract

After the 1919 annual meeting of the Royal Australasian Ornithologists' Union in Brisbane an excursion was made, from the 1st to 8th October, to the Bunya Range portion of the Great Divide, an excellent account of which was written by Mr. A. H. Chisholm. Travelling 153 miles by train from Brisbane, via Toowoomba, to Dalby, which is the nearest point of importance to the range, the party traversed another thirty miles of plain country to the dry forests of the foothills, finally climbing some three miles along a scant and rocky trail winding through uninviting forest country to the camp situated "over 3,000 feet above sea-level." The camp was pitched at the northern base of the Mt. Mowbullan peak, which attains 3,700 feet and is said to be "very little lower than the highest peak of the Macpherson Range"; the actual site was in one of the perfectly open park-like stretches of country, described as being remarkably characteristic of the Bunya Range and as occurring "strangely, right in the middle of great stretches of jungle... with, overall, the statuesque forms of the Bunya pines."
