Is this an article?[edit]

Does this deserve its own article? Can't sleep there, I don't think – cacahuate talk 01:55, 23 May 2007 (EDT)

The "can you sleep there" test sometimes gives way to a "is it so remote that it can't be reached as a daytrip from another place" test for remote islands, and in this case I think these islands pass that test. However, as discussed on Talk:Antarctica#Australian Antarctic Territory, regions based on Antarctic territorial claims generally aren't appropriate for the purposes of a travel guide. For example, visitors to the islands in this region will probably also visit Macquarie Island (claimed by Australia), so they should likely all be within the same regional article. However, since we don't have a driving reason to have a sub-region for these islands, redirecting this article to Islands of the Southern Ocean might make sense. -- Ryan • (talk) • 02:38, 23 May 2007 (EDT)
