The easiest and most reliable place to see buff-banded rail in the Geelong is on the campus of Deakin University, Waurn Ponds. Take your lunch and sit on the seat beside the lake behind the library and several will wander around your feet for sure.
Grid reference is  F6 on the map at this link

A $2.50 parking fee applies during the week unless you want to walk several hundred metres from the free carpark. Deakin is also a great place to see yellow-tailed black cockatoos which seem to be resident, lorikeets and often a common bronzewing in Carpark 3. I think Margaret Cameron has done a seasonal/frequency birdlist.
