Campbell Island

Campbell Island (Motu Ihupuku):

Located 700 kilometres south of New Zealand, Campbell Island is considered the albatross capital of the world. It is home to six species of albatross and is the main breeding grounds of the majestic Southern Royal Albatross. Its bleak landscape is tinted with the pink, yellow, and green of megaherbs – a large group of plant species that are found nowhere else in the world. The island’s history is rich with exploration, farming, mystery, and even ghost stories.
