Need Help Identifying these birds (SEQ)

I need help identifying these birds.

The first 3 pictures were Taken in Lamington National Bird and please not that the first 2 pictures were of different birds found in different sections of the park. 

The Last photo of the Cuckoo (unsure what type) was taken at Oxley Creek Common.

1. Given the altitude of Lamington National Park, suggest Bassian Thrush, other option is Russet Tailed Thrush

2. Not sure, possibly Grey Shrike Thrush, can't judge size, and not sure colour is right.

3.The yellow eye ring suggests either Fantailed or Oriental Cuckoo, given lack of barring on chest suggest likely Fantail.

As always happy to be corrected.

Yeah its definetly either one of those but I always have difficultly telling them apart. Also yeah i was thinking maybe it could be a Brush Cuckoo too

I think the eye ring rule out the brush cuckoo.

I tend to agree with Dale's assessments:

1. Bassian or Russet-tailed Thrush (can never pick the two apart).

2. Grey shrike-thrush

3. Fan-tailed cuckoo - due to lack of barring, plus they are definitely the more common and hence more likely to be seen.
