I have seen Mangrove Robin at Mangrove Beach in the Cape Arid NP just west of Exmouth. Don't know if you could say it would be a good chance or not. I have also seen Mangrove Robin at the port in Derby several times, but certainly not every time. It does not occur in Broome, which has the wrong species of mangrove. I have seen it in mangroves near the top of Cape Leveque north of Broome.

I have seen Mangrove Golden Whistler in the mangroves not far from the Learmonth airport. Learmonth is the airport for Exmouth and is south. Follow a track off the main road towards the mangroves. Again, I wouldn't know how likely you can see it there. Mangrove Golden Whistler is quite easy to see in Broome, either in the town mangroves or at Crab Creek. It might take a little perserverance, but you should find it. The port at Wyndham is also a reasonable chance.
