Request for assistance for visiting birders - this coming Tuesday or Wednesday in Melbourne

This week husband James and I had the pleasure of hosting a delightful
American birding couple, Daniel Marks and Mary West, on the Sunshine
Coast. This occurred through the birdingpal network. On Sunday they move
on to Melbourne.
A death in their Melbourne host family means they will unexpectedly be
staying in commercial accommodation somewhere around central Melbourne.
Daniel is speaking at a conference at Monash on Monday, and they will be
free to go birding on Tuesday and Wednesday. I suggested one of the best
venues for birding is the Western Treatment Plant.
If anyone with a gate key is free either Tuesday or Wednesday to
accompany Dan and Mary to the Western Treatment Plant, I can guarantee
you some very good company. They are willing to hire a car, or else pay
costs in a generous birder's car, whichever is more convenient.(I'm not
familiar with the recent access rules for the WTP.)
Alternatively, as an alternative if there is no offer of help to get to
the WTP, perhaps someone might volunteer to take them birding at another
good location. They have not been to Melbourne before, but are pretty
good with a satnav.
Please contact either Dan or Mary directly if you can help.
