immigration in Ensenada?

So I crossed the border at Tecate today. It was super easy, just rode straight through the US side and immediately was in town. Where the hell is Mexican immigration? I saw nothing that looked like an immigration office immediately after crossing. I'd read somewhere that at some crossings the Mexican offices are some way inside the border, so I figured that must be the case here too, so hit the road to Ensenada. Turns out it was TOO easy, I met a Swiss couple here on an Africa Twin, who had found the immigration office in Tecate. They said the only way they found it was a soldier was standing out the front. I was expecting a gate or something, so I must have blown straight past.

I'm on an Australian passport, so I do need a visa, as well as the TVIP - can anyone confirm that it's ok to get both of these at the immigration office in Ensenada? I don't want them to get pissed off with me for being in the country without a visa!

Alternatively I go back to Tecate and pretend I just arrived...
