Macquarie Island

Long celebrated as one of the wonder spots of the world, Macquarie
Island is an island of great beauty and outstanding natural diversity,
a breeding place for more than 3.5 million seabirds, most of which
are penguins. There are four species breeding on Macquarie
Island: Royals, Kings, Gentoos and Rock Hoppers. There are also
three types of fur seals and one seventh of the world’s population
of elephant seals breeding on the island. In 1948 The Australian
National Antarctic Research Expeditions established its expedition
headquarters on Macquarie Island. If time and weather permit, you
will have the opportunity to land ashore and view the prolific wildlife
that resides here.
