Admiralty Group facts for kids
The Admiralty Group of islets consists of eight rocky outcrops within 2 km of the north of Lord Howe Island, from south to north:
- Soldier’s Cap
- South Island
- Roach Island
- Tenth of June
- North Rock
- Flat Rock
Roach Island is the largest, being about 15 ha in area, 800 m long and 86 m high, with a much-photographed 15-metre-tall tunnel at its northern end. The basalt lava flows are crossed by many dikes. The vegetation consists of grasses, sedges and a few bushes.
Boat trips take visitors to Roach Island for a bird colony experience.
