Heard Island and McDonald Islands

Do they sell hamburgers here? Well, if they do, they will be Australian hamburgers, because these are Australia’s little piece of the Antarctic, albeit two and a half thousand miles south-west of the mainland. Aussies call it HIMI, which is typical of the macho male Aussie (HERI, aka Sheila, doesn’t get much of a look-in down-under). There is really nothing else to say about the place, except penguins, volcanoes, and no, you cannot go there. And anyway, shouldn't Ronald spell his last name MacDonalds.

Surprisingly, the best information source on the unique ecology of the islands is UNESCO.
