Story: Subantarctic islands

Carnley Harbour

Carnley Harbour

Carnley Harbour sits between Auckland Island and Adams Island. It was formed by a volcano, of which the harbour was once the centre. The Grafton castaways in the mid-1860s survived on the northern shores of the harbour, which also has an opening to the rugged western side of the islands.
