Thanks Dave,
I should have verified my info before emailing :-)

On Richard's point of information for visitors, I took 3 overseas visitors
around the WTP after they had caught the train to Werribee and a taxi from

until the guy at the office asked them for their car rego number that it
became apparent to them that walking wasn't an option :-)
