Hi Catherine. Welcome to Melbourne/Victoria/Australia.
I know of three such sites, all quite small colonies however:
1. In a culvert under Beach Rd (publicly accessible) within the Western 
Treatment Plant at Werribee, ie between the Beach Rd entrance gate and the 
2. In a culvert under Beach Rd (the sealed public road) between Avalon Airport 
and the Beach Rd entrance to the Western Treatment Plant.
3. On the cliff-face of the Werribee River adjacent to the driveway into the 
Werribee Park Golf Course.
If you need more information, feel free to get back to me.
Regards. Richard
