If you have ever been to Wilsons Promontory, the southernmost point of mainland Australia, you will be fascinated by a hollow island with a mysterious shape and strange prominence in the middle of the ocean.

Located off the coast of Victoria, Australia, Skull Rock Island, also known as Cleft Island, is one of the most beautiful and most visited islands in Wilson Promontory National Park, thanks to its unique shape.

From a distance, this island seems to be just a normal rock with a rugged shape protruding from the water, but as you get closer to the west of the island, you will be surprised to see the presence of a giant object like a human skull, with the eye sockets being a large cave through the center, and two hollows below like two nostrils. This partly explains the birth of the name Skull Island.

The unique shape can be explained as the result of millions of years of erosion by wind, rain and sea water. The island is made of granite, a hard rock that is easily eroded by natural elements. Over time, natural forces have eroded the surrounding softer rock, creating a shape that resembles a human skull.

The strange shape of the island is what stimulates the curiosity of tourists, however, exploring this place becomes a big challenge because of the rugged terrain from the high vertical cliffs and the lack of places to dock or anchor boats, making it very difficult to access.

Furthermore, the waves and tides that surround the entire island are also a great danger to those who intend to move too close because they can come at any time. That is also the reason why up to this point, according to local records, only 9 explorers have successfully explored the deep cave on the island. And they were dropped from… helicopters!

Although it looks barren on the outside, Skull Rock has a rich ecosystem with a wide variety of flora and fauna.

The vast caves inside the island are home to many seabirds. The cliffs surrounding the island are also home to seaweed, sea snails and other marine life. Hidden deep under the clear blue water are colorful coral reefs and diverse schools of fish, creating a wonderful underwater world.

Come to Cleft Island and see one of the rare vast caves that has been almost untouched by human foot, you can completely leave the mainland behind to explore the mysteries of the natural world.
