Discovered by Abraham Bristow in 1806, these hilly and mountainous volcanic islands are uninhabited, and remain a significant nature reserve, providing homes for large colonies of albatrosses, sea lions and other wild animals.
Located 362 miles directly south of New Zealand, all attempts to cultivate the land and to colonize the islands have failed, primarily due to the harsh weather conditions and the low-quality soil.
