I saw one sitting on a submerged reef off Budgewoi Beach back in about 1990. It was in January. I was fairly new to birding at the time so didn't report it officially as I thought it unlikely to be accepted. I still have a clear memory of the bird, however, and am 100% sure that that's what it was.

From memory, one turned up in someone's back yard in the Kurri
Kurri/Cessnock area around about the same time.

I've also seen them at Byron Bay a few times, but I guess that wouldn't be considered unusual.
