In this 360 degree tour of Macquarie Island see how expeditioners live and work by exploring a range of buildings and scenic areas. Visit the kitchen and dining room, the library or a bedroom, and check out the biology laboratory, see where the daily weather balloons are launched, or stand on the island's wild and windswept beaches.

You can view the tour on a computer, tablet or mobile phone. Phone users also have the option to view the tour with a virtual reality headset.

On the right side of the virtual tour screen is a map that you can expand. Scroll up and down the map and hover over each yellow dot to see which building or lookout you can visit. Alternatively, follow the menu on the top left of the screen. In some locations you will see an 'i'. Click on these information boxes to read more about the place you are visiting.
