Landscape photo of Macquarie Island

In their own words

This little island is one of the wonder spots of the world. It is the focus of the seal and bird life in the Australasian sub-Antarctic regions, and is consequently of far greater significance and importance in the economy of that great area than its small dimensions suggest.

- Douglas Mawson, 1919
