Not sure how long this has been the case, but the helicopter is no longer trackable on flightaware:

VH-WAH - STATE OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA THROUGH COMMISSIONER OF POLICE (JANDAKOT WA AUSTRALIA)
This aircraft (VH-WAH) is not available for public tracking per request from the owner/operator.

Interesting! Although it probably makes sense :)

FlightRadar24 also block aircraft at the operator's request. I know they block aircraft for some wealthy Western Australians (mine magnates, Crown Casino etc).
You can still see the aircraft if you run your own receiver and decoder (pretty cheap and easy)

Yep. Having your own ADS-B receiver is the way to go.
