"If only you could visit Hurd Point" Macquarie Island Off The Beaten Path Tip by tiabunna
Macquarie Island Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 5 photos
If you could, you would see the huge Royal Penguin colony (about a million birds) around the coastline. It is impressive, but must remain 'off the beaten track' because, unfortunately, tourists are not permitted to visit Hurd Point. The accompanying photo was taken looking down on the beach from about 300 metres, high on the slope of the plateau, in 1968 (at a time when the penguins were not nesting, but elephant seals can be seen).
