very rare on an AU to pop a rear welsh plug, but.....

I'd be checking the heater pipe (runs from the water pump to underneath the inlet manifold)

Otherwise If you can't 'sight' the leak and it is defiantly where you say it is, then its a gearbox out and you need to replace the rear welsh plug (located just below the head and behind the ring gear.)

sounds like the rear welch plug?? if so its a gearbox,torque converter and flywheel/ring gear removal job...to get to the welch plug..
is it coming from in between the engine and gearbox or running down from the top??
