Depending on your base in Sydney and transport arrangements, alternatives are 
Warriewood Wetlands on the Northern Beaches side of Sydney - also accessible by 
public transport - where they are very regular.
Olympic Park also a possibility, especially around "Triangle Pond" near the 
Waterbird Refuge.
In terms of getting on to them, I would say familiarity with the song would be 
very useful (Morcombe App for example).
They often call repeatedly from a perch without moving far.
Otherwise fruiting privet, lantana or backyard soft fruits like figs are a 
great drawcard but perhaps a bit early.
Very best of luck (a "plastic" and a feral perhaps - but a very attractive 
little S Asian import).
