- ‘The day's walk usually began with a climb up to the plateau through the tussock grass which was always wet in the daily drizzle.’
- ‘Well over to our right we can see a large island that's covered in tussock grass and amongst this tussock grass we can see literally thousands of pairs of nesting black-browed albatrosses.’
- ‘Next we had to get our gear up a 70-foot-high cliff; carry it through waist-high tussock grass, which is just about impossible to walk through without falling over every few steps; and, finally, wade through a bog.’

- ‘Nests were usually well hidden in strong coarse grasses, leafy shrubs, and shorter tussock grasses.’
