When you board your expedition cruise ship bound for the Southern Ocean, excitement awaits en route to the renowned white continent of Antarctica, including a stop at Macquarie Island. This wildlife paradise south of Australia is bursting with thousands of elephant, leopard, and fur seals and millions of penguins. On top of this, there is an Australian base there that is staffed year-round with a small number of people. You can easily spend two days exploring all that Macquarie Island has to offer, including the 200,000-strong King Penguin population, and other penguins populations like gentoos, rockhoppers, and royals. If you can believe it, there are a stunning 72 species of seabirds that call this island home. Contact us when you're ready to start planning your Antarctica adventure to see Macquarie Island!
