A further newspaper report (in The Age) mentioned "Fiordland Penguin" but
gave the impression that the bird was a Yellow-eyed penguin.

The detail that I know of is yes, it was a Fiordland Penguin (adult female
and low in weight). A local person was alleged to have found it about two
weekends ago. Incidentally, the finder shouldn't have been 4-wheel-driving
on the beach as it is illegal in Victoria- one of our best laws!

A look at the Atlas of Victorian Birds or Hanzab shows some interesting
seasonality in the yellow-crested penguins in SE Australia.
