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.

    Isn’t it magical how a scene can change with the passing of the hours and the sun? That’s what makes photography so interesting.

  • Thanks Gary ! It certainly does make photography interesting and the colours can change several times within a minute at that time of day.
    A little piece of trivia … I have around 600 photos of these islands, mostly from home, but some from various sites on both sides of the river :)
