ABOUT THIS IMAGE
The Tollgate Islands in Batemans Bay, New South Wales, were named by Lt James Cook on his
epic voyage along the East Coast of Australia in 1770.
Dawn The End of Summer
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.
Daytime Tollgate Islands
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.
“Dusk Over The Tollgate Islands”
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.
