Conical Hill and Mt Galloway

Conical Hill and Mt Galloway

Mt Galloway, in the distance, is the highest point on the Antipodes Islands at 366 metres. It is a volcanic cone, and Mt Waterhouse, a little further south, is another high cone. The Poa litorosa tussocks and Polystichum vestitum ferns which dominate the landscape of the Antipodes Islands can be seen in the foreground.
