Hi Elliot,
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 

Good birding,
John Tongue
Devonport, Tas.
