Bob, Lewin's Rail are currently classified as 'Near threatened' in 
Australia (The Action Plan for Australian Birds).  They are also listed as 
a threatened species under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act and 
I can send you some Victorian information if required.

There's a bit of literature and internet information on the species. Check 
the following.

cheers, Martin
