Is there a place on the East coast of Australia where one can reliably see bioluminescent algae (or dinoflagellates or fish)?

I'd be especially interested in locations in NSW and where one can swim in the bioluminescence, but I think I ask too much.

I've been able to visit the Glow Worm Tunnel in the Blue Mountains (photo).

I'm told the bioluminescent algae in Gippsland Lakes in Victoria is usually only quite subtle, but that's where I plan on going if I don't find a better location!

Farm Cove near the Royal Botanic Gardens according to according to botanist Tim Entwistle.

It's also worth noting that swimming at night (when the algae is luminescent) is "a formula for shark attack".
