Nice talk Alex and Adam,  you may be interested to know that White's seahorse is now listed as endangered on IUCN redlist and some captive bred specimens were released at the site you mentioned recently.  I actually dived that site last week and photographed the seahorses on the Seahorse "hotels" that were installed there - basically wire cages to give them substrate to attach to.

Sydney is a good spot for quite a few seahorses and close relatives, we have White's and pot bellied seahorse and have had Hippocampus kelloggi reported.  We have pipefish including vagrant ghost pipefish, pygmy pipehorses , of course weedy sea dragons at dive sites around Sydney.  White's seahorse are found on many swimming enclosure nets in various estuaries around Sydney.  There have been quite few pot bellied seahorses reported just recently on a dive site at the entrance to Botany Bay.
