We get all three regular Australian gulls here on Phillip Island, Victoria. It's more like a Kelp than a Pacific Gull to me - smaller beak, paler yellow beak and small red dot on lower bill. The angle of the beak could make it look thicker, but it is nowhere near as robust as that of Pacific Gulls.
