Hard and soft corals are common around Raoul. The reef communities are transitional between tropical coral reefs and temperate rocky reefs. Algae forests, common around mainland New Zealand, are absent and instead rock-faces are covered in turf-forming algae. Individual hard corals stood out on the reef as unusual occupants of New Zealand waters.
