Sydney Visit and Questions

I am an American birder who is planning on being in Sydney next week, and I 
 have a few questions.
First, there was a report of a Powerful Owl roosting in the Royal Botanical 
 Gardens, on September 6.  Has it been seen recently, and if so, where  
should I look for it?
Second, same for Tawny Frogmouth.  I would love to see one right in  
Sydney.  Specific directions would be appreciated, since I don't know the  
very well.
On previous visits to Sydney, I have seen Red-whiskered Bulbul in the  
Chinese Garden, at Darling Harbour.  Are they still there?
Is there anyplace else particularly interesting that I could reach  
conveniently on public transportation, from the CBD?
And, lastly, is anyone interested in going birding with an American birder  
on Thursday, 7 October, Friday, 8 October, or Saturday, 9 October?  I'd be  
glad to take public transportation and meet you somewhere.
My entire itinerary for my upcoming trip can be seen on my website at
I'm really looking forward to visiting Sydney again, and I am especially  
excited about the prospect of seeing the inland areas of NSW and Victoria 
after  all the rain that has fallen this year.  Any and all suggestions and 
tips  appreciated.
