Atlona and Williamstown are also accessible by train, and there are generally
Pacific gulls there.
If you check the Birdline archives
(http://www.eremaea.com/BirdlineSpeciesArchive.aspx?Taxon=245), Steve Davidson
saw Black-faced Cormorants at Williamstown twice in March this year (possibly
the same one). Not something you could rely on, though.

I guess you are ticking!
Can't help with the WTP but I have a very good idea about the birds along
the coast. St Kilda is a bit north of my patch - the City of Bayside (which
starts about 10km south of the Melbourne CBD) - but I guess that Black-faced
Cormorant would be rare there as it is here (5 records this century).
Pacific Gulls are increasingly common as you go south. You would almost
certainly find them if you went to Brighton Beach, Hampton, or Sandringham
stations on the Sandringham railway line from Flinders Street. Head for
the foreshore, find the path nearest to the beach, and walk back towards the
City, get a train back from another station north (not so easy from Brighton
Beach but if you get to the Brighton Marina you could find your way - about
Best of luck
