places to see birds

Does any one have any suggestions about good places to see birds, in Sydney, that I can reach without a car? 

I like to walk in remnant bushland areas, recently in Oatley, southern suburbs, and i didn't see a single bird, and only heard them from quite a distance. 

Lower nth shore, at Forsythe park, which is native bushland also but in a more built up area surrounding it, I did see a few birds but still mainly the ones i see at home, magpies, lorrikeets (except for the one kookaburra and a brush turkey).  

Thanks Elizabeth

I'm not a local but the ebird hotspot map could be useful, when you zoom in, you can click on the markers which detail what has been seen at those locations.
