Just to complete the picture, as so far Victoria and Tasmania are the only states not to be mentioned as having had Asian Gull-billed Terns, there are at least two Victorian records. Myself and Peter Lansley saw three in breeding plumage near Carrum on one of Melbourne Water's Eastern Treatment Plants external wetlands on 13 March 2005. At about that time, one was reported by members of the VWSG associating with a flock of Australian Gull-billed Terns on one of the big inlets near Wilson's Promontory and I think others may have been reported from that site.
