1. Overview

The United Kingdom transferred these uninhabited, barren, sub-Antarctic islands to Australia in 1947. Populated by large numbers of seal and bird species, the islands have been designated a nature preserve.

As a territory of Australia I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.

There isn't much information in the database for Heard Island & McDonald Islands, most likely because it is either a part of another country (i.e., a territory or possession) and therefore most international statistics are counted for the country as a whole, or, this is such an exotic place that little data exists about it.
