Daphne major

Daphne Major Island and its neighbour Daphne Minor Island are obviously of volcanic origin they are roughly 10 km west of Seymour, Daphne Minor is the one that is very eroded, while Daphne Major - the one that is visited retains most of its typically volcanic shape (called a tuff cone).

Tourists may not spend much time on Daphne, but that is not true of scientists.  Daphne has been the site of a major scientific research project. Scientists have captured and banded each of the island's finches, monitoring the birds in an attempt to earn a greater understanding of their lives.
