Bush Stone-Curlew birdUQ is home to the rare Bush Stone-Curlew species which has created their own sanctuary garden in this location on campus. 

These 50 – 60 centimetre high birds have long gangly legs, large yellow eyes and grey streaked upper parts making them difficult to see in bushland. 

Also known as the Burhinus grallarius this protected native bird prefers a sparse understory so they can see predators while foraging for insects. They tend to nest in populated areas.
