  Looking toward the webcam (on the right)
by tiabunna

Favorite thing: In recent years, a webcam has been installed at Macquarie Island. The webcam window also includes the current weather details. If you want a real change from your current surroundings, and long for a very different view (and aren’t fussed about the weather), check here.

The webcam is in that structure on the roof of the buildings in the background and often shows photos of the beach at Buckles Bay, adjacent to the station on the east coast. This photo looking toward the camera shows how wildlife (here Elephant Seals, King Penguins, Royal Penguins and Gentoo Penguins) can be found right through the station area. This is looking south toward the meteorology and communications buildings (and webcam), the main living area is behind the camera.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
