Montague Island was originally a fertile hunting ground for the
local Aboriginal people and the island contains a number of
Aboriginal sites. With the appearance of white settlement, huge
numbers of seals were commercially harvested during the early part
of this century.
Declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1953, the guided tours are popular
as they take in the colonies of seals and fairy penguins, as well as
a glimpse of past occupation.
