If you're going to Bruny, you should be able to get Black-faced Cormorants near
the ferry at Kettering, and Little Penguin at the colony at "The Neck" on Bruny.
Morepork and Masked Owl are a little more uncertain. We have had Morepork at
Adventure Bay (Bruny), and there is supposed to be a reliable Masked Owl Roost
at Port Arthur - which I haven't been to, so others can probably give better
