"During summer the Mutton birds fly over 8000 kilometers from the Alaskan islands to Phillip Island to return to their burrows. At nighttime, around January,in summer, they come back and they've got their little baby chicks, and they feed them. It's magical. It's insane: you're standing there and thousands of birds are flying by at sunset."

"It's really amazing to just go there and watch. It's off Smiths Beach and you just keep walking, walking, walking to the left and then eventually you get there. You have to jump off the rocks at the end and straight into the waves."
