A couple of years ago, Heide and I took a charter out to Montague Island. It was a memorable trip and here are a couple of Heide’s shots from that trip, plus some information that might be useful.

Like being a breeding ground for 12,000 Little Penguins, over 1000 Fur Seals, and 15 bird species. Depending on the time year, you might see dolphins, whales or grey nurse sharks on your way to and from the Island.
