"Getting to Macquarie Island" Macquarie Island Transportation Tip by tiabunna
Macquarie Island Transportation: 1 reviews and 2 photos
There is only one way to reach Macquarie Island: by crossing about 1500km of ocean by ship. Unless you are involved in one of the research expeditions there, that means travelling on one of the increasingly frequent expedition-style tourist ship visits.
There are no wharfs and no harbours. Landing is by zodiac (weather permitting - NB that it may not be possible). Although the National Parks authorities allow landings only at a few places, at the places you visit you'll still see plenty of the wildlife.
