History & Geography

In the late 1850s, the islands were found by UK-icon.pngUnited Kingdomball, and in 1910 were formally annexed with the raising of the Union Jack.

They are now administered by Australia-icon.pngAustraliaball.

Nowadays, only some people can vist the island, as it is a protected nature reserve, and a place for scientific research Suprisingly, Heard Island and McDonald Islandsball is not just a flat ice plain. In the center, there is a steep mountain section as a result of the volcano which formed the main island. Flowing down from these, are glaciers which flow down from the main island There are also small wetlands at the periphery, mostly in the lagoons, and some near Elephant Spit.

There are also a few destroyed shacks, and shipwrecks from previous failed expeditions.

Fun fact: The volcano that made the island, is known as Big Ben, in honor of Britain's famous belltower.
