ABOUT THIS IMAGE
The beautiful Tollgate Islands at the mouth of the Clyde River, New South Wales, Australia, taken from my home between March 2006 and December 2010 at various times of the day. The Islands were named by Lt James Cook on his epic voyage along the East Coast of Australia in 1770.
Tollgate Islands Nature Reserve was created in April 1959. It consists of two rocky islands located 6km east-south-east of Batemans Bay and covers an area of a little over 12ha. Permits are required to go ashore, but anchoring a boat in the sheltered waters provides ultimate pleasure observing the natural wonder of these islands from the comfort of your vessel.
The Tollgate Islands provide a breeding habitat for seabirds, including Little Penguin (Eudyptula minor), White-faced Storm-petrel (Pelagodroma marina) and Wedgetailed Shearwater (Puffinus pacificus). White-faced Storm-petrels are international migratory birds.
Although the same plant species occur on both islands, there is a significant difference between the types of growth found on the tops of each island. On the west island a broad bladed tussock grass is dominant while the east island is largely covered with coastal heath species.
