I'm not aware of any restrictions on fishing for them in harbours/estuaries....

I don't think there is any way you can choose a "small bull shark" fishing place over any other size bull shark fishing place.... They choose not you! There are loads of bulls in the harbour but don't hear of that many being caught even as bycatch. I've never heard of anyone going out intentionally to catch bulls - out of interest why do you want to do that?

Spend enough time fishing the surf beaches you will get plenty of bronze whalers, dusky whalers, gummies, rays, nurses, wobbies etc. might even come across a bull. I always target jew off the beach at night and get loads of sharks as bycatch, have landed up to 7ft nurse (protected species) and bronzies/duskies to 5ft (they go much harder).

If you do hook one, just take care when you are landing them and releasing - could easily lose a few fingers or end up with some arterial bleeding if you don't get it right.

I have heard of guys targeting sharks at Gladesville / Huters Hill near Banjo Patersons.

youTube had a guy catching and eating the small bull sharks from a river in QLD.
