[flag of Australia]
by Antonio Martins

In fact Heard and McDonald Islands are far to the south west of mainland Australia, in the south of the Indian Ocean (near Kerguelen Island, approximately 73 degrees east, 53 degrees south -- reference: The Times Atlas of the World)

There was a scientific base on Heard Island in the 1950s but it is not currently staffed. There are occasional visits by the Australian Antarctic Division (see their web site)

They fly the Australian (blue) flag if anything.
