I don't have access to ABRs or Steve Wilson's book at the moment, but I can say that Scarlet Honeyeaters do show up at ANBG regularly if infrequently - probably on average about every 3-4 years. Always single birds (not unexpectedly) as far as I know, and my feeling is that the last few have all been males - this is the first female that I can recall hearing about. I think there are also a few records from locations other than ANBG, but the latter appears to be where they are seen most frequently.
Can anyone do a quick COG database query?

Just a quick question. Has Scarlet Honeyeater been recorded from the Botanic Gardens before? If so, how many times?
Many thanks if anyone knows,
