Discovered in 1810 by the sealing ship "Perseverance", Campbell Island lies 400 miles (640 km) south of the South Island of New Zealand in the South Pacific Ocean. It is high and rugged, rising to 1,867 feet (569 m) at Mount Honey with cliffs on the west and south coasts. The east coast is deeply indented with Perseverance and North East harbours, a sunken volcanic caldera that cuts across the island. The climate is cool, humid, and windy. The island has the largest breeding colony of the Southern King Albatross and from the hilltop lookouts, you may observe the courtship and nesting behavior of these incredible birds. Every southern summer, 15,000 of these birds nest among clusters of brightlycolored megaherbs - indigenous plants, first described by Joseph Hooker on the epic voyage of the Terror and Erebus.
