Hi Ivan,

I'm not sure if you'll have access to a car - I suspect possibly not, which 
might limit things a bit. There are a few places but none probably in easy 
walking distance. The main carpark at the domestic is pretty good for 
introduced Rainbow Lorikeet and a few urban birds but not much there

If you do have access to a car, or can walk pretty quickly, you could try:
There is a public viewing area along Dunreath Dr - good for planespotting but 
also has a few honeyeaters including White-cheeked Honeyeater, Brown and at 
present Tawny-crowned. Also get fly buys from Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos and 
less commonly Carnaby's, and the chance of a few raptors, particularly Little 
Eagle, Nankeen Kestrel and Brown Goshawk. Rainbow Bee-eaters in summer but not 
present at the moment. Australian Pipit and sometimes Banded Lapwing can be 
seen down on the short grass between the taxiway and runway. Problem is I'm not 
100% sure whether you can walk along Dunreath Dr

Guilford Cemetery on Kalamunda Rd just north of the airport is fringed by 
bushland on the south edge which has a reasonable selection of bushbirds 
including Red-capped Parrot, a range of honeyeaters, Yellow-rumped and Inland 
Thornbill and others. Would be one of the better areas to check but would 
require a car

You can also walk or drive down to the river at Ascot from the domestic 
terminal, via Fauntleroy Av, but it's probably about 2km each way - probably a 
bit tight to walk for a 2.5hr stop. A reasonable variety of commoner waterbirds 
around, and a few more urban bushbirds too

Not sure if that's much help - hopefully someone has some better ideas
